Odd, more airflow should mean more cooling. With electric fans you don't have a fan belt to slip at speed. Fans going in correct direction?

Could the timing be getting out of whack at high speed?

Could there be undiagnosed trannie trouble that occurs after lockup which creates drag and overheating?
