Took #2296 for it's maiden voyage outside the neighborhood.(almost 4 years after ordering)
The water temp stayed pretty constant for the 20+/- miles, at 80-85C. The oil temp climbed to 105 /110C. My question is what temperature should the oil operate. I have an oil cooler which I have not installed yet. Thanks guys!

Oil should be 180-210*'ish to operate correctly and do it's job. Synthetic oil can run up to about 260*'ish for short periods.

200-230 is right in the window for most non-synthetic oils. Your temp is fine.
