Hotter tune=hotter temps?

I've been running tow files exclusivly for the past three years and have probably only run anything more maybe three times. I just loaded an old street tune yesterday just for fun. I noticed my trans and coolant temps are about 6 degrees hotter with this street tune vrs my last tow tune. Is this normal?

Yes iknow it isn't bad. I'M just asking if it's normal to raise the temp when you raise the power level. I'm assuming it is normal since you are adding more fuel, air and possbily timing. Just curious is all. I know it isn't something to worry about

Yeah man that's no big deal. Heck, it coulda just been a 6* difference in temperature outside.

yes I know it isn't a big deal . I'm not complaining about it . Nevermind I'm obviously not getting my question across

I understand what you're trying to say. And yes, you will probably see a tad bit higher temps on the higher tunes, and the engine is injecting more fuel and working a little bit harder.
