Transmission Options for Me

I'm looking to upgrade my transmission down the line, and trying to get a idea of what would be the best, but more importantly (for me personally) cheapest route to go.

I'm thinking taking my 6L80E and getting it built like I've seen a couple people do, instead of buying another trans already built.

I would like to keep the car a A6. I haven't fully decided, but maybe when I get the car paid off I might go for a forged motor build, but that is a ways off and i'm not really sure, I think the trans and then the rear end are more important. I want to be able to eventually put some drag radials on and not have to worry.

Opinions or any ideas of what sort of costs I would be looking at to get my 6L80E built to withstand more power than its factory limitations? I'm currently seeing my trans temp get around 190*F in 80*F weather while cruising around at normal speeds.

I'm thinking a good transmission cooler would be a good idea to hold me off until I can get the trans built. I have this one in mind B&M.
