Upgrading trans cooler

Sounds like you want to parrellel off of the factory points and add another cooler with solinode and a pump? How hot does the oil get? Maybe upsize your lines from the trans?

I have never seen mines get over 200* and I pull 9000 lb trailer with 18,000 lbs of equipment sometimes. I take my time and dont mash it.
