I'm a little hesitant to tune this car since it already runs pretty warm on track. More power and boost will just make it worse and require more cooling mods. I'm sure I'll do it eventually though.
I tuned @PointByPatrol ‘s car and 0 temp issues with the tune. It will heat up as much as stock.

I see... I suppose intake and exhaust is a good start then and maybe after that you won't need a tune!
Intake and exhaust won’t get you a lot of power. Tuning is the best bang for buck.

I'm not following. The car can and will overheat stock, no? Also, didn't Ben have the HEL Oil Cooler to help manage oil temps?

I had the HEL oil cooler and PWR track spec radiator. When I overheated at CMP my only mods at the time were PRL intercooler and HEL oil cooler, and she overheated fairly quickly. If you're running the stock intercooler I'd imagine that you'd be alright.l, but ai can't confirm.

Yes he did have the oil cooler to help with the oil temps. What I meant is that the car will heat up as much as stock no differences in temps. Oil cooler needs to be done and an upgraded cooling system on a stock car. On stock components it will overheat in stock and modded form.

This! The radiator is one of the most crucial mods. The water temps get out of control, we have not been able to log oil temps since it’s calculated and nobody has tested with an actual sensor.

@twostepperformance is working on a temp sensor combo. Apparently it's a weird size.

Keep in mind too that your tune runs richer, which aids in cylinder cooling. I'm willing to be a guinea pig on a bone stock car to see how it fairs....if I'm able to get back behind the wheel. (Not scared, but this insurance shit has been a nightmare)

Yeah I try to control cylinder temps as much as possible. But still the heat produced will overwhelm the stock radiator and oil cooler. It is just not up to spec for the amount of heat this car produces.

So with a stock car or a tuned car you will get roughly the same track time before it overheats. So really no difference aside from one being a lot faster in lap times than the other.

I think it's safe to say that this could also be relative. The intensity of the driver ultimately determines the heat.

My car 3 laps in at sebring completely stock was starting to get up there.

The car will heat up as much as stock no differences in temps because of the way you tuned it or generally speaking? Will these OTS maps generate more heat than the stock calibration and as a result, the car is more susceptible to overheating on track?

I have the PWR track spec rad already. Water temps are fine now but oil temp is still a big question mark. Definitely want to get an actual sensor for oil temps before I send it on oil cooler. Until then, cool down laps are in my run plan (currently needed for the stock PS4S tires anyway until I Kill those).

Edit: hottest I've run the car is 70F ambient. So TBD on how much worse it gets this summer.

So it will heat up oil temp and water temp wise as much as stock with any tune. Since the heat buildup is gradual but cannot be dissipated quickly enough.

Now on tune difference they will have different cylinder temps depending on the approach taken. That will determine amount of knock and how much timing it will pull.

Then you are good to go my friend!
