I can also attest to this and is a BIG REASON I am such a fan of Synth 
Oil. A local, reputable offroad shop that does AirCooled VWs carries a 
full line of Redline oils. The reason Being: They noticed a 20 DEGREE 
TEMP DROP when they went to REDLINE over standard oil. Personally my L6 
saw a drop of about 10 degrees when using Redline over standard oil.

My 2 cents
