    Now we need to find a date when we can both get on the track.

    Could you share how you plumbed the hoses in and out of the transmission for the cooler and pump?

    On my install, we used the fill plug on the transmission for the return line, the drain plug was plumbed to run to the electric pump.

    That worked for me for a couple years on street tires on track, but when I switched to R compound it hurt the transmission (lost 4th gear) because the fill plug location dumps the cooled fluid on the temp sensor. So, it keeps you from going into limp mode but it allows the gears to overheat.

    I think what you need to do is use external temp switch to control the pump. Fathouse does a nice job with adding a sensor for their temp controller which is not in the same spot as the factory one. Another cheaper solution would be to use Weldon pump with their thermo switch.

    Thanks. I consulted with a Tremec engineer and he showed me where to add a bung in the case on the driver side to directly lubricate the head set gears. So no real changes in the setup and I can still rely on the factory temp sensor.

    Same here. Ran over 30 track days with this plumbing setup and never had an issue. With that said I would partially to fully replace the trans fluid every 4-6 track days. Typically 4-6 sessions per day (1 1/2 - 2 1/2hrs per day)
