High oil temp?

Last week I was at VIR for two days the air temp was 95 plus. My oil temp after a run was 275 is that too high? Should I have used 15/50 oil instead of 5/30. My water temp was about 195.

not sure about the oil temp (I'll check and see what mine is at today)...but the water temp is about right for stock. I'd stick with the recommended mobil 1 5w30. With a 160 t-stat, mine runs around 180-185 on a hot day, so you may want to consider that if you want to drop your temps.

Sorry this might be a stupid qustion but I'm a little confused about the "six-bolt, sintered steel main bearing caps." would that be in other words 6-bolt main? I've heard of 4 bolt main being the big deal for running high hp, I've never heard of this...
