The colder the better, but not much more than 200 degrees and thats pushing it. I have installed tranny coolers that bypass the one in the radiator and those run as cool as 140 degrees even under load, of course external temps make a difference but still they run much cooler and the failure rate is greatly reduced.

110,185

180 or lower is ideal.
