I don't know how reliable it would be but if you have a way to make your own cooler lines you cooled to into the pressure side of the cooler line?

There is little difference between pan temps and pressure port installation, I use the pressure port, why drill a hole in a perfectly good pan. Make sure the end of the probe doesn't come in contact with the casting inside the trans, you may have to use some washers to space it out a bit.
