120 is too low

I have a tru cool max and I showed a steady 165 today pulling 16K @ 65 mph on flat ground. it goes up to 180ish in stop and go traffic.

Re: after market trany coolers?????

Damn...my trans will not go past 145* when non towing. First thing i'd do is install a deep trans pan. I have a mag-hytech pan on mine. I've towed a few times and when i did the hotest it ever got was 155*.

Re: after market trany coolers?????

Just normal driving on a 80 degree summer day I am at 170Deg. The other day it was 95 and normal driving was 180deg.
I have been thinking about doing the same thing, found some decent looking coolers from Jegs. I would try the deeper pan first though, I would think the extra fluid would help.

The cooler would also add extra fluid capacity...and it would definitely do the job

Re: after market trany coolers?????

I have been curious about this as well. I just towed around 7500lbs for 70 miles in 90+ degrees and it would hit 182 or so but stay around 176. Without a trailer on hot day its around 165 to 170

180 isn't that bad. As long as you stay below 200. At 240 the heat starts defacing the clutches.

Re: after market trany coolers?????

With the fluid too cold you filter never get used. So basically if you plan to add capacity and defeat the factory design you might want to use a 08+ pan filter. the stock setup is thermostatically controlled which bypasses the filter till the unit is up to temp. The stock 6.0 cooler is very effective and plenty large for what ever your towing.
