Oil temp issues may not be related to oil brand motul is highly regarded.

Into the yellow isn't really anything. What temp is it hitting? what conditions is it hitting this temp?

Draw a sample and get a used oil analysis.

Post your water and oil temperatures.

Post your oil pressures at 1k and 5k rpm.

Send all these above to your engine builder and get direct feedback.

Well I dnt know exact numbers of the temp, but I was just wondering if in these New York heat my oil may be too thin? Idk. 🤷🏾‍♂️

Then there will be no wondering.

Then follow as SD_GR suggests. I'd also not consider NY hot by any stretch of the imagination, so I'd probably lean away from that particular possibility.
