External transmission filter

Anyone know if there is a good aftermarket replacement for the external tranny filter on my truck. It's an 08' early Job 1 and still has the filter on the outside. We didn't realize it until I was in of process of getting a flush job done. Gonna have to wait now because apparently nobody but ford has it. Any better options?

That looks like a nice setup. Where is the best place to mount it! May have to get one ordered. I'm not sure what the OEM one costs, but knowing Ford it's probably close to the same price or at least half!

I like the dieselsite one's. Build one just like theirs. And cheaper, better filters.

So I just ordered the dieselsite filter kit yesterday. Unfortunately I still have to leave the stock canister filter in place because I have an early 08' that had it mounted externally between the bell housing and tranny. Should still be much better filtration overall... I hope.

cancel the Deiselsite unit and just swap in the later model pan and filter and delete the inline roll filter

Is it that simple?? I was told the solenoids are different and I'm guessing the cooler lines would have to be replaced or rerouted. New style pan and everything probably isn't cheap either...

pan and filter is all you need from What I have read plenty of times and my google research seems to confirm ,,
and I plan on doing it soon myself

also someone just lost a transmission and was advised to remove an aftermarket inline filter because of the added restriction.

if you do the in pan filter it filters 100% not like the toilet paper roll that is in the bypass circuit that we have now ,,

the pan wasn't bad$$ and actually Derale makes a neat one for around $140

u don't want to really replace the lines I heard it was a ***** I would just pull the roll and mark the canister do not use or something to that effect




We can always run this By the transmission section on here where our favorite former ford transmission engineer hangs out
