On an automatic it's really important to get the coolant temps down since the radiator shares some heat exchange with the trans fluid. On my manual I never got the coolant hot enough to get the car to limp even on a 95 degree day (although I'm a novice). The oil I got to 300*F though, which gave me the half engine light. So for now I'm going to just do an oil cooler upgrade. zsapphire7 ran with me that same day and with dual ER coolers he didn't have any limp mode issues all day which gives us some data points on how well they work.
