Checking out several kits on JEGS, Summit, ebay, etc.. what works for y'all?
I looked into to too, but saw lots of complaints about leaking or put fitting kits and i guess it doesnt bother me anymore. I think the trans-dapt works the best though

The TransDapt 969-1227 dual filter kit for $80 is looking pretty good to me. I need to take some measurements and see if 30"s of line will put me at a good location. I really like the idea of dual filtration. I run mobile 1 extended performance with a quart of Lucas synthetic stabilizer so it would make sense to have more filtration for longer periods of time between oil changes.

Seems like Teflon tape or rector seal would be adequate to prevent leaks. Probably more favorably the rector seal. Good for higher temps.

Like that location Jferg. Makes for some easy changes. Ever have any problem with road debris hitting it?

Always a good idea!

It is another member on f150online.
I wouldn't run it in that location just due to debris.
I'm also afraid to mount my aux trans cooler and eventually my heat exchanger since they both will have thermostat controlled efans and I collect a lot of snow and ice pack in the winter months..

Any torque converter recommendations for my set up? Just got a new one in with trans rebuild but its got stock stall 1600-1800 I think. Also decided on staying with stock 24lb injectors.

You gonna be running it at the track or DD? If its primarily street I would run a stock lock up. Breaking the tires loose starting out on wet pavement is lots of fun, but frowned upon by the boys in blue.
