ya thats a good temp man. as long as you stay below 1200. dont push 1400 for more than a 1/4 mile or you will get engine too hot. possibly melt a piston or up pipe or damage turbo.

should be ok if your not towing a ton of weight. they are sort of hit or miss. some guys have the stock trans in their trucks forever, some wear out quick. how does it shift? how many miles are on it? what are you looking to use the truck for?
