looking for LS1 oil flow diagram
does anyone have a pic showing the path of oil flow in the LS1, from pan to pump, thru oil filter and oil passages?
or if anyone is sure, a brief description would be good.
I have an oil temp sender mounted in the port just above the oil filter. I am wondering where abouts in the system that is, and whether I should be seeing high oil temps there or not. If my digital guage is correct, I am seeing 230F on average, and it'll peek to 240-250F when idling at low rpm's and not moving.
That would put yout sending unit in-line right after the pump, so that should be giving you a pretty good idea of temperature in the pan.
However, before you get too worried, have you tested the sending unit/guage to see how accurate they are? The calibration may just be off.
