External Trans filter

I see kits for 150 to 200 bucks out there for transmission filtering. What makes that so special? I can get some brass hose barbs a little line and a filter head for maybe 30 bucks. Now depending on the filter 5 to 20 bucks. So maybe 50 bucks total? What makes the expensive kits worth the extra money?

Better yet if you have that filter remove it. It clogs up and causes transmission problems.

The shop that built my trans removed mine for this reason. Since that filter has been removed, I have lower trans temp readings, and have not had any problems with the trans.

I figured it may cause something like that, no experience with it myself, just looks like it.

Well what happens is alot of people don't realize it is there. So when they service the trans they change that filter. But they forget the external filter. It clogs up and burns up the trans. Also it restricts the flow of the fluid. I have talked to alot of transmission shops they all recommend to remove it.

Thats why the filters cost more, because of the filter heads, you need that pressure bypass... The Diesel site kit is the one I would run!
