There's a guy whose tranny failed and they pulled the data from the life time of the trans, and even at the track, the trans temps were 110C for an hour, at the nurburgring, but never over.
I was mainly hoping that a tranny cooler would keep overall coolant temps a bit lower and take load off from the radiator. Is your car an AT?

Just saw that you have a low temp thermostat and the 1M waterpump. What is your impression about those parts?
