how hot does your trans temp get

i have an 01 7.3 have had since it was new. i have a lawn company and pull trailers from 5k to 10k. the orginal trans would never get over 200. no matter how you drove it. had to swap trans at 100,000. the trans i put in would run 240 or higher a lot. it only lasted 30,000. now i am on trans #3 and it still runs 240 on the highway emty. i have exhaust, 38r turbo, edge evo. both trannys had billet backed convertors and bd diesels acummulator bodies. any help would be awsome thanks. also sometimes the trans temp doesnt get over 220. i have tried aftermarket coolers and it doesnt matter. how hot do your trucks run. thanks

I would recommend Total Diesel Performance (TW), Swamps, Beans, or PHP for tuning.

people have their preference, I like my Dp a lot. the only reason i dont like other tuners is the stupid little knob type switch they give you.

the reason its so good is because of its size, they are like 135% bigger than a 7.3L cooler. Also i would maybe replace your bypass valve on the trans.

In 100 degree weather driving in stop and go traffic my trans temp get to a max of 165 degrees.

DP tuner likes playing with timing too much. Advancing it too far, causing high cylinder pressures, which leads to broken connecting rods.
