reiterate: No probably not. I don't actually know what the spec for ATF would be in your application, but you will lose a couple percent in FE since you're a couple degrees colder than optimal.

I would just plug your lines, and run a test loop with and without and see what the difference was. I used to have a 5 mile test loop I used on the mustang.
