New MaxTow gauges

I just put a MaxTow tranny temp and a EGR gauges in a pillarpod on my 95 F 350. The tranny I have is an E40D and it's running about 165 to 170 unloaded. EGR is 60 at 2000 RPM. Just wondering if anyone has any numbers on what is a normal temp for the tranny with a 10,000 lb load on it? If not, what is a critical temp for a tranny? Thanks

by egr do you mean EGT?

normal temp for your transmission is about 80 degrees above ambient temperature...

Yes EGT meant. So it was 90 today in Phoenix and my tranny temp was 170. So this is good?

I installed a 40k tranny cooler in mine recently and went from 175-180* normal driving temp to 125-135* much happier now and though it still gets warm climbing hills with my 12k+ trailer once I'm at the top she cools fast.

600* on the EGT gauge at 2000 RPMs level ground driving is pretty good. Throw on a custom chip and a more efficient compressor wheel and I run down the freeway at 475-530*.

My tranny runs about 180 on the flat but throw any hill in there and it will hit 200 easily, just recently i towed my toy box to vegas and hit 220 a few times on my way out there.
