they are garbage... you would be happier with one of these setups. http://www.dieselsite.com/index.asp?...ROD&ProdID=761 but if you still must it has to go on the return line from the cooler to transmission make sure you put the filter in the right direction as well and thats it.. Just fine some rubber hose on that return line to tap it into if you must use that kit. But I high suggest not to and use the one I showed.

Don't put that magnafine back in. Junk. They clog up, causing the fluid to go through the bypass back into the tranny, no cooling. I believe John Woods won't warranty his trans if you put that filter back on after he takes it off. I THINK he only uses the internal filter. He also brazes the bypass closed because that can get stuck open, again causing loss of all trans cooling.

I have a few you can have for shipping, does that tell you something? These things have been known to over heat trannies and I would never place one on my truck. I am working on a bypass type trans filter. Be caeful with some of the trans filters you see advertised, I was looking at Dfuser.com and they are selling one for $120 or so, the problem is it is a full flow filter with no restriction or flow control in the base or filter. Good way to destroy a trans. I commented on it and they said they needed to change their site.
