I agree with you on this one. The first summer that I had that temp gauge it drove me nuts every time that needle was in the red (which was often). Don't get a temp gauge until AFTER you get the oil cooler.

Another thing the oil cooler helped with was idle. When the engine got too hot I would get a bad hanging idle, that rarely happens any more.

He's been working on that kit for at least a year now and it looks like he's done a top notch job.
