2010 camaro protection with uprgrades

I already have a full exhaust, intake and a dyno tune, im wanting to install some 3.73 and a stall too, my question is what stall to go with, and what do I need to do to ensure my tranny is going to hold up to these mods. also since I've gotten my long tubes my cooler fan runs all the damn time, is this normal with the amount of heat the long tubes produce?

In the tune the fans must be set accordingly.

Look into getting a bigger transmission cooler. But these A6 hold a lot of power.

A stall does generate lots of heat and especially with gears too. A nice B&M and I believe phastek or TORQ have a nice tranny cooler. Iirc.

Look into the ADM Trans cooler. It is one of the best ways to keep heat down in a tranny! Mine doesn't get above 180 in the 100 degree heat under normal driving!
