I am going to be dropping the pan on the tranny this weekend and want to change the filter, too. My question is.....Is there really only filter, as in, no competitors/better options? (like there are with fuel and oil filters) Are they all made to the same standard/quality? Should I just run down to NAPA and pick up what ever one they have there for me?

Thanks,

Billy

I just had my tranny upgraded and he used the paper filter from the 94 2500's. The paper filter apparently is much much better then the plastic junk in the 48RE.

I just did my tranny service and bought the afe trans filter from xtreme diesel. Im sure any atf-4 would be good but me personally i would go amsoil your only dropping the pan should be 6 - 7 quarts.

what do you all think would be more important in your changing of the fluid, The Type of Fluid (ATF +4) you use or the Type of Filter you put in?

Its deffinately more important to use a atf-4. I would use a good synthetic amsoil or royal purple. Our tranmissions are not the greatest trannys uless you build them to the tune of $4000 - $7000 a good tranny fluid will help with longevity.
