The torqshift should be at an average 165* degrees, so anything from 160 to 180 is pretty normal.

my understanding is that it should be about 70 - 80 degrees above the outside temp once warmed up............

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

I would not keep drive when the temps get over 200* There is a thurmostat with an oil cooler for the trans. It opens at ~170*.

Under 180 is normal. Even unloaded in the summer(california) I will hit 185 at the most. On the HW at ~50-60* out side temp. My trans will stay at 150* +/- 2*.
