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 ...

my tranny gauge should be here on wed, then i can put in my pyro and boost gauge. i am interested to see what is happening. especially since i have an e99 with the crappy cooler. next up is getting a 6.0 cooler.

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