I dont know whats in your car but without a oil cooler and a upgraded rad, and having a FMIC reducing the cooling to the rad, yes

120'c water? Thats no good! You're going to crack a cylinder head or ruin your head-gasket like that!

Do you have electric fans? Do you have any fan cowling/anything to direct airflow ? What is your current setup for Intercooler / Radiator / Oil Cooler - how are they positioned?

Are you running standard intercooler, piping, CAI, radiator?

You don't really need to run an Oil Cooler.

If you don't have a FMIC, I'd be looking into that, and also a decent radiator.

Oil at 120 is fine. Were you on the big track or the lil fig 8 pens? If you were not on the big track then you were overheating because your not getting enough air into the car. What size rad is in the car?

i had upgraded intercooer, radiator, oil cooler and had the same issues. use good engine oil, put in a thermostat should help.
And i changed my clutch fan to a 7-8 shroud (i think) r33 one. that solved my problem totally.

you can also change the ratio of the coolent mix this will help a couple of degrees, mixing at 50/50 is good for the cold winters but 70/30 is better for the summer as more water in the mix the better the cooling capability
