i have the hi-tek cooler with fan on a E99 and it still does not cool that great. The fan is set to turn on at 175 but when it kicks on it reads 190 on my gauge. I don't know if the gauge is reading different temps because its in the side of the trans. I have not been happy with the cooler. I just picked up a 6.0 cooler and am going to change. Plus the cost of the hi-tek cooler and all the wiring was way more. Wished I had just done the 6.0 cooler first.

Are you experiencing overheating? I have never seen my trans gauge move past the spot it gets after getting up to operating temp. I have 37's and have towed some pretty good weight in some pretty hilly terrain with the Spartan 275 tune and like I said before the gauge stays in the dead middle like it always does. Is this gauge one of those "dummy" gauges? I did switch the ATF to Amsoil so that might help a little.

I pull a 14k 5th wheel and live in upstate new york, so long steep hills in the Adirondacks and Green moutains of vermont tend to make trans temp skyrocket once the converter unlocks at slower speeds. The factory trans temp gauge doesnt move until about 220F. And the fan doesnt kick in until about that temp also. For a short time I have seen 240 when climbing up in to Lake Placid. I plan on mounting the cooler under the truck , possibly between the rt side rocker and frame or under the bed. Also wiring the fan to the upfitter switches for intermittent on demand operation. Let me know if anyone has any mounting ideas or pics of installs. JIM

If the additional cooler doesn't help you out you might want to look into one of the early lock tunes.
