I haven't checked into this thread in a while, but have you already verified your temp gauge readings are accurate? Do you have an oil pressure gauge to corroborate the temp readings? If you're getting big spikes in oil temps, but your oil pressure is staying steady, then that might imply it's just your temperature sensor being affected and not the oil.

No pressure gauge, but the oil temp gauge was checked using a high-end IR thermometer. Readings from the thermometer at the sensor spot were within 5-8 degrees of what the gauge was reading.
