External Tranny Filter Kits

Wanted to see if anyone would be interested in a External Tranny Filter Kit... i have an opportunity to pic some up and was curious what kind of attention they would bring.... so let me know if you would want something like this so that i can determine if ill start carrying it or not

99-03 7.3L $175.00
03-07 6.0L $209.00
08 6.4L $209.00

Filter Replacements $10.50

the picture also has the optional pressure guage which lents you know when to change your filter that option is another $15.00

want to see how many people are interested because i have to buy in bulks of 10 units each order and dont want to have that many sitting around in stock

k here is some info of their website:
How it works: Our filter is on the "push" side of the pump. This location allows for a filter with increased efficiency -- or smaller micron rating. Normally, you have the dirty fluid in the pan. The OEM filter hopefully catches the really big particles before it enters the valves and pump. After running through the transmission, it leaves as "dirty" fluid. This fluid will have clutch dust and other impurities which are all normal in any automatic transmission. This dirty fluid would be recirculated back to the pan. With our kit you can catch dirty fluid BEFORE it makes back to the pan. Keeping the fluid clean, keeps your valve body clean which keeps your transmission shift quality at its highest. After installation of our external kit the filter in the pan now acts simply as a pickup for the pump and virtually never needs changed.

Our unit has a bypass valve in the housing as an added safety feature. This internal bypass valve in the housing is set at 25 psi to allow some fluid to bypass the filter should the filter become nominally dirty. In addition, if the filter becomes plugged, our unit will go into complete bypass mode and allow the full volume of fluid flow to bypass the filter and insure that your transmission always has returning fluid for lubrication. This full bypass condition will cause the overdrive light to flash due to high output pressure. This is a normal warning light. The PCM thinks that the transmission has a restriction somewhere in the fluid line and is letting the operator know.The higher pressure is caused from the resistance of the bypass valve spring. So, even though you have full fluid flow it is under higher pressure and the sensors that monitor line pressure in your transmission will detect the higher pressure. Simply change your filter and the light will go out. There is no risk of burning up a transmission from a dirty filter when you use our kit. With normal routine oil and filter changes and a properly operating transmission the full bypass mode will never occur.

Our filters have a micron rating of 22 microns. That is plenty for any transmission. Pan filters have no real micron rating. Many are nothing but screens.

Our kit also acts as a "mini" cooler since it is detached from the transmission and the air flow over the filter element would help to dissipate a small amount of heat.

ill also be carrying their filters..... as for pricing ill edit my original post and put it up their..... as for brand its made by a reputable company and if you really want to know i would have to tell you in PM's

I may be interested. I'm about to flush the system and switch to amsoil anyway. My trans has about 108k on it now and still has firm shifts. Please keep us informed.
