I recently flushed the trans fluid as described elsewhere in this forum w/12 qts of Amsoil ATL. Since Toyota only installs a screen, I pieced together & installed a remote inline transmission filter system. While at it, I dropped the pan to clean it and the screen. Nothing was very dirty. The vehicle has 58k miles.

Parts list for remote system:
a) mount - $33
b) 3/8" clamps - $2
c) 6' hi-pressure 3/8" id hose - $15
d) Mobil1-204 filter - $13
e) Two 3/8" by 3/8 npt bent tube fittings - $10
f) One qt. of make-up fluid -$9
Total = $84

Here are 13 pics. The trans remote is on the drivers side, and there is an remote engine oil bypass filter setup on the pass side.

There is a thread & Pics of the engine oil bypass setup in the Maintenance Tech area

Hope this helps(you & me?)

Nice mod. So are you at all concerned with flow restriction? I am sure you already thought of this, but it's worth a mention.
You could take this a step further and add a tranny cooler . That seems to be the best thing you can do for a tranny. Seems you could integrate one fairly easy now. :bigthumb:
thanks
Don
