Engine Oil Temp/Operating temp..

The trinity should be at my place Monday. So today I popped in the Jet 180 stay so it would be ready to go.....but
I'm driving around today and noticed the car is not getting over about 195 degrees. Engine oil temp was around 190-192. I figure since I was moving it was keeping it cooler.
So I stopped In a parking lot and let the car idle for 10+ mins and the engine oil temp never went past 195...
The fans kept cycling on and off.
The car definitely had the stock 203 stat evidenced by the temps yesterday. On hot days it was normal to see 210-220 in the engine oil temp and 215-220 operating temp.
I just got the car about a month ago and I'm really hoping there isn't any tuning/fan temp changes currently in it???
I have no way to put the stock tune back if there is.
Should I be worried??

Runs great but wtf. Yesterday my engine oil temp was 210-220 depending. It's 80 and a bit muggy today in Chicago. Same yesterday.

Not a problem at all, yesterday it was about 95 degrees here in El Paso and cruising around yesterday and stopping at a few stop lights my engine oil temp was about 222 degrees and my water temp got up to 192 with a 180 stat. The engine oil is design to run at extreme temps so I wouldn't worry too much about it. And my water temps usually don't go over 192 until I turn on the A/C and it gets up to about 210. Hope this helps! I have a 2010 RT with a SRT radiator.

Ok got cha if the car is married to another device you will be able to tell once your diablo arrives and if it is i believe they are ways to get back to your stock tune I would call diablo tech and see what they can do.
