Those numbers are in line with what I see ... The trans temp is too high ... better get a cooler or something else could be wrong ... I hope someone with more knowledge will chime in ...

I have not seen higher than about 170* towing 7000lbs in 70*-80* weather and traffic, pulling hills ect ... that tranny temp is borderline bad ... I hope some others will chime in and comment ...

I can get to 170-180 empty when 80 outside, never towed so not sure on loaded temps.

@70mph I see about 6-8psi boost, and I run about 140-150 trans empty, I have seen 195 when pulling 15000# @ 70+mph.
