Why not use the remote engine filter setup for what it's for and spend the 40-50 bucks to get a remote trans filter setup? :shrug

The instructions say to install it in the return line, Any reason why ? Can I install it in the return line that exits the radiator BUT is before the auxillary trans cooler ?

my tranny guy that has been doing it for 30 years and just rebuilt my c6 told me not to run an inline filter. said any restriction caused by the filter will do far more harm than good. not saying i agree with him totally but thats what he said.

Yeah, I did notice that some of the aftermarket tranny filter kits come with PH8A's, which is a oil filter.

I can see that being true if of course it becomes totally clogged or clogged enough to restrict flow to the cooler. I suppose one advantage of a screw on filter would be the by-pass valve

I thought these filters DO have the bypass valve in them ??? I was looking on Ebay and on the description of one of them {a photo copy of an instruction sheet } it said they do- If they don't I want to know cause I won't run one then-

I don't know if the inline filters have a bypass, I'm just assuming they don't but I could be assuming wrong. I can't see how they could have one but I can't see a lot of things..lol

Oil filters won't work correctly
Look up my threads to see why and what filter to get
Ryan,

I have been using a Wix 51515, the same for my engine oil, as the PermaCool 81008 trans filter is specifically crossed referenced to this filter.

I see in 2005, you recommended the Wix 51622:

1) it is designed for trans fluid :duh I hate using the wrong part for the wrong job when it costs so little.
2) the PSI ratings are different than an oil filter, that seems like a big deal to me
Wix 51515
Media: Paper/Glass
Bypass Valve: 8-11 PSI
Burst Pressure: 290 PSI
Max Flow: 7-9 GPM
Micron: 21

Wix 51622
Media: Paper
Bypass Valve: 7-9 PSI
Burst Pressure: 500 PSI
Max Flow: 7-9 GPM
Micron:28

The Wix trans specific filter appears to have slightly less filtration and a much higher burst pressure rating. Other than the Paper/Glass and Paper filtration differences, what would be the critical difference? What kind of E4OD line pressure are we talking about?

I do respect your opinion that it is the "correct" part for the application. I am just trying to see why in order to forecast potential problems and plan for an upgraded E4OD.

Edit: After additional searching, I believe that the E4OD line pressure may well exceed 200 PSI at times requiring the higher burst pressure trans specific filter that Ryan recommends.

--------Idle-------Stall
P,N----55-65
R------75-99----240-265
OD,2---55-65----156-174
1------75-99----161-186


---------------------------

By the way, this is an opportunity to tell you that your RJM Injection Technologies Truck MAF Conversion Harness is awesome and a welcome upgrade to my MAF project!!! :twotu:

I "might" used an oil filter if that is what I already had in the garage and I had no money.
But I would get the correct trans filter when it was time to change the filter.
