I am curious what the car will be used for.
A trans Brake valve body operates the trans at a high main line pressure. This heats the fluid up besides the heat from the high stall speed converter you have.
If the car is street driven much , a larger cooler will be needed. At the drag strip only
, a smaller cooler could be used.
