Tranny or motor? Gogo solenoid?

Hello all I've read what I can and I think I'm stumped. my truck falls hard on her face when I really get in it. Almost like a total loss of power for a long second then its back. Trans fluid doesn't seem burnt but the h&s defuels for trans temp whenever I'm towing in city conditions, reaches about 180 pretty quick. I tow about 6k in the tow setting with tow/haul. Also reaches 180 after about 2 hard passes through the gears in performance (hd300). Had trans rebuilt with billet trip disk converter, all new stock solenoids, shift kit, and all red eagle clutches in December. The only slipping I notice seems to be in the 2-3 shift but when it falls on its face I can't really keep up with where the trans is at. Will the gogo solenoid help? Are these temps normal? Any help is greatly appreciated, can't afford another trans failure.

the 180 thing is a good thing... there is a thermostatically controlled valve in the trans that collapses flow to 10% when temp is under 180, it opens above 180 partially to flow more fluid, and is wide slam open above 200.. the optimum temperature of the trans and fluid is 180*.... what is your defuel set at?

I'd lean more on the motor... Have you checked your boots? how is your filter? what kind of fuel pressure are you seeing? it could simply be a lazy pump that doesn't react as quick as it needs to.
