Is it best to hook up the a transmission filter to the return line or the outlet line?
Thanks.

Rick some people try to complicate things, I agree with you just put the internal filter in.

I found it on the shelf the other day, forgot I had it. My buddy suggested I get it when I bought the trans cooler a while back. I figured it's paid for so I might as well use it. I was thinking of running it into the return line going into the back of the trans. Overkill, maybe, but it will be easy to change. It also has a transmission temp gauge settup with it.
Thanks.
Edit... thanks for the confirmation, critter.

If you feel the need to add in a secondary filter (which I personally don't) put it in the line from the trans to the cooler; not the line from the cooler to the trans. Why? Because this will keep the small metallic particles from getting into and settling in the cooler. But make sure the filter will flow sufficently and that you check it at regular intervals.
