trans temp

I just installed a New hughes transmission with a 2400 stall and a autometer gauge. When i forst test drove it it stayd at 180 and i thought that was great because i have a very small coller on it. When i took it to work today It never really got over 150 and i was pushing harder thatn the test drive. On my way back home it stayed at about 130.Is that too cold? I thought i would have a over heating problem because the cooler is so small and with my old trans and converter it would burn my legs on the freeway because it would get so hot.What is the optimum range and should i be worried about the heat?
Any help would be appreciated.

trans temp

I race 600 horse 3000 lb drag car. After breaking a couple of trans, I installed a guage. I figured I could predict my e/t using the guage. I was suprised to see it never got over 150f Don't worry it is OK

trans temp

I found out my gauge was rreading wrong. It was actually running past 250 I disconnected the ground from the gauge and it started reading right. Iknow this because i used a thermal probe to the out side of the tranny and it was hot.after i found this out I bought the biggest cooler at kragen and put it on and it ran at 210. I t looks like a line might be touching a header but ill check it in the morning. I knew that cooler would be too small.

A (Ford) auto trans engineer says that for every 10 degrees over 170, your fluid life is cut in half.

A couple aftermarket transmission companies have this same information on their websites. Many rebuilders will also say the same thing too.
