My Ride: 330I

First time poster here.. I'm planning to do this swap ASAP, as my mech. fan is almost at 110k miles on my 02' 330I. I've read through the post and can't see a reason not to. On the note about the tranny getting too hot after the conversion, I live on Houston and it gets hot down here.. really hot... Has anyone removed their transmission t-stat? I know we used to leave the engine t-stat out of Big-blocks back in the day to improve water flow, as our winters here last about 3 weeks and it aided greatly in cooling. Would this same principle work on the tranny as well? Becasuse of the location of the tranny t-stat it also seems it would vastly reduce the restriction on water flow it causes in the bottom of the expansion tank.
