If you use an engine radiator OEM type set up the trans fluid will be that of the water temperature when up to full operating temp.

So, the cooler the engine temp, the cooler the trans temp.

This is one reason why so many performance and heavy duty/towing vehicles use auxiliary coolers. Plumbed after the radiator, BTW.

Like engine oil, the fluid has to reach a high enough temp to evaporate moisture, etc,. but not so high as to damage the fluid.

Bottom line 180 degrees F would be about the practical ideal- hot enough to rid the fluid of contaminates yet cool enough for long fluid life.
