    Thanks guys, yeah, it's been up to 210, a little higher when it was hot a few weeks ago and I took it for a drive, with AC on it jumped, so killed AC. Going to order a GM Coolant Temp sensor, I replaced the sensor with a Dorman, so it's possible the numbers may be off just because different sensor and I'm worrying about nothing. There's no slippage and trans locks up nicely otherwise I might be scared the TC could be cause?

    Took it out this morning for a few runs, 60*+ outside temp, coolant 185, trans 197...

    I over think things, but really don't want this build to go bad too fast... Lol

    Mine got up to 221 the other day, but then dropped to 197 cruising at 40mph for a couple miles (small town) before my turn.

    It's never been consistently over 220, and I don't have alotta faith in the gauge, tbh.

    Is just crazy cause largely due to my last build seizing, I'm listening to every hiccup and over checking everything. I know the stock transmission was never this hot... But I agonize over it when I know what to do (cooler), lol. Guess it's the procrastinator in me.

    Appreciate the replies!

    Ok, well, got together with my buddy finally (he's been crazy busy) and he TIG Welded my exhaust! Had way too much stuff as I ordered parts to replace what was there, but he customized it, reducing the number of joints, is awesome!

    So now I'm truly 3" from collector to tail... Stainless bend post collector, Nice Vibrant double wall stainless flex, HiFlow cat, VBand, I put in the two Vibrant Ultra Quiet Resonators I had waiting too... No DRONE, but a beastly rumble!!! Those Hooker Maf-Flow's are the shyt!

    No pics/vid (thank photobucket), so you'll have to take my word ; )

    Next will be Trans Cooler
