The theory is not sound in my opinion. Assuming you run the engine to full operating temp, the oil temp is 220-250, or higher if you sit in traffice. How much hotter does the engine oil have to be to somehow lube the IMS more effectively?

If anything, a seal or bearing that is poorly designed and grenades would tend to do so MORE at higher RPMs. That is why race engines often grenade, as they are pused to the limits of their engineering tolerances.
