Tranny temp

Hey guys merry Christmas to everyone I got a tranny temp gauge and fuel pressure gauge for Christmas I was wondering what the tranny temp should be at on the hi way? At a idle I got about 54 psi of fuel pressure but I haven't put the blue spring in yet
Thanks Jeff

I believe the general rule is 60-70* over ambient.

I never exceed 167 F unloaded or with my small trailer. It will fluctuate below that level depending on the temps outside. I just changed my fluid and filter and there has been no change - it still pegs 167 when fully warmed up.

Humm.. With my Torque app mine is reading 180's empty with 30's ambient, basically kind of goes with the coolant temp. I hope it is reading wrong. what could be the problem if it is actually that hot? The fluid looks and smells good, I was planning on doing a fluid and filter change in the near future.

So I have been running stock for the past few 100 miles. I just realised that my trans runs warmer by about 8* when stock. Makes total sense since the shifts are not as firm!
