yeah, second opinions are always a good thing. otherwise you can never go wrong with an external cooler. the 4R70W runs uncomfortably hot out of the box. and if you didn't put mercV in it to start with when it was rebuilt for petes sake get it flushed out. the torque convertors in these transmissions do NOT like dex/merc, or merc3 at all, and will start to shudder.
RUST!! eating away at me more than the rear fender wells
