Trans temp with synthetic brands

Has anyone ever seen any differences between
different brands of synthetic Trans fluids.
what one cools better?
what brand do you run?
what are your Trans upgrades?
what Temps do you see towing?
what are your Temps non towing?
the reason I ask is because of the price
difference in transmission fluid.
does one cool better than the other.

Re: Trans temp with synthetic brands

We run amsoil but all we do is tow. minimum 6500 pounds empty to 18,500 loaded full. Never seen over 180* loaded or 160* empty. Tru-cool added to stock trans cooler plus B&M deep trans pan. Also run john woods valve body. All synthetics are better than non synthetics but I prefer amsoil.
