So yesterday I drove the car around with the AC on as we are in a heat wave here. No matter what I did to the car it would not go past 180 on the trans. I was in slow traffic at points, a couple WOT pulls on the freeway just because its a Camaro LOL etc. This confirms to me what I have been saying about temps with AC on or off at least with my car......

I installed my JRE dipstick and filled my trans up what seems to be more than I pulled out and it is running much cooler. I have been driving with the AC on because itís 115 here. Lol so probably a bit of both.

Well supposedly running a fair bit cooler can increase engine wear but by how much I've no idea. My 180 temps I reported were in about 96F weather the other day which is really hot for my northern neck of the woods.
Driving around last nite AC on & maybe 85 F outside on a road where I could maintain a 40 mph or so speed I didn't go past 170-175 on the gauge. I think thats the cooler giving me that extra bit though. The truth is I've stopped worrying about my trans temps after realizing it was coolant based not trans based specifically.

You can easily cut off the line from radiator and set a second rad in the line. there is enough space in the front. i did it.
every extra cooling helps.
so I got a separate motor oil cooler , cooler thermostate and zl1 hood.
I changed the fan temp points, so it never went over 92 C at stop and go and 85 C cruising.
Maybe 87 C is a little better, but there are no good thermostates on the market, so I took the 76 C Mishimoto. I think Chevy doesnt make a good job ...
