Rebuilt tranny- does a triple disk converter overheat in traffic

Had my transmission rebuilt. Bts valve body new seal, heavy duty clutch packs, and a triple disk converter. Truck is a 2000 quad. Cab dually. My fiancÚ was driving it home and it stayed at around 160 highway but as soon as there was traffic the temp was hitting 180 to 190. Tranny temp sensor is in the transmission drivers side. Is this normal under normal driving conditions on a 65 degree day? The shop told me it was and that they recommend a 6.0 cooler.

With the increase in clutch surface, and the higher pressures from the valve body, and the little tranny cooler, sounds about right.

The 6.0 cooler is the cat's meow for the 7.3 trans. Put one on and there should be no issues at all.

To me that's a little high unless there's a lot hills and she's holding the truck in traffic with the transmission instead of the brakes. Putting in a 6.0 should be at the top of your to-do-soon list.
