[DML] Re: stage II

I don't know if anyone has had a Stage II long enough to do any
long-term life tests. You have to figure everything in life has
trade-offs and compromises. It would not surprise me if a Stage II was
harder on the stock transmission. There are steps you can take to
maximize the life of the transmission. Change the fluid often, always
keep the level at the right amount, do all of the external on-car
adjustments, add another transmission cooler, and never drive on a
defective shift computer. Cooler is always better for automatic
transmissions. With the added power you will be pushing through the
torque convertor (and the added heat) I think an additional oil cooler
would be a big benefit. I would try to do it up front by the radiator
and maybe even disconnect the one on the water pipe if longevity of
the transmission is what you are after.

not.  As you said the stock prv in an auto is quite the slug.
