Question Transmission Remote filter kits

I wanted to know if there is a good transmission remote filter kit out there. I have looked at the derale kit which is 46 to bucks which is not bad and I also found an BnM filter kit. But I just dont know if they are good kits any suggestions would be awesome! I just got a new trans and want to protect it as much as possible!

So I found this Derale transmission remote filter kit on PATC under the dodge 48re. So it should be alright to use right? I mean I know there are some good ones out there but like everyone else I am trying to get a bang for the good old buck! Derale Cooling Products

I think any filter will work as long as it is installed properly.

Another thing to consider is that the filter head should have a high pressure bypass. The reason is that if the filter plugs up the bypass will open allowing full flow to the transmission. Running it dry or overpressuring lines can be more harmful than cleaner fluid.

Also I wouldn't go any smaller than 20 microns. I think 50-100microns is plenty for the trans. The smaller micron filters will plug up too fast IMHO.

The Derale kit uses rubber lines. I'd try to upgrade to steel braided lines. The price is right though.

Just my opinion.

If I had an expensive transmission it would surely have an external filter on it!

I have ran the dieselsite trans filter kit for 16,xxx miles with no problems, the fluid still looks new. I am about to change out the baldwin filter, just ordered several of them for $7 per filter. I would go with the dieselsite kit, its cheap, easy to use, uses over the counter baldwin filters and has stainless lines.

Here is the issue I plan on getting both the Trans remote filter and engine oil remote filter but I can afford to get one right now which should I get? Since I have the upgraded trans already should I just get the remote filter for the trans from dieselsite? Or get the engine oil remote from nuc motor sports?

The 48RE oem pump is just enough to get the job done in stock form. Throwing another flow restriction into the system could be bad news since the 48RE was never designed for an added external filter like the 68RFE or the Allison. Heck, the Aisin AS68RC only has a pan filter and it comes with the best warranty over Dodge, GM and Ford offerings.

A lot of the remote filters have a bypass in the head for if the filter gets clogged the fluid goes on a detour. I just dont see why adding extra filtration is a bad thing? I know a lot of people have added the remote fuel filter that filters down to 2 mic with little to no problems. The filters on these trans remote setups do not filter down that low just enough to get the smaller debris that the main filter can possibly let by. I appreciate your advice I really do... I just want to protect my investment and what better way than better filtration.
