Okay, before I go installing the tranny cooler, I'd like to figure out (the non-messy way) which line I need to cut in order to go from the stock cooler, to the extra one, then back to the tranny. So basically, I need to know which is the return line from the stock cooler. When looking at the tranny, there are 2 hoses that come out; one on the "top" and another on the "bottom" so to speak. I'm guessing the top one is the return line, but I'm not 100% sure of that. If anyone has already done something like this, or has access to the manuals in order to find out, it'd be a BIG help.

I'd rather cut 1 line, and go straight from there, than work one line off, turn the engine over a few times to get fluid flowing, and find out I pulled the wrong one. The hoses look to be a real PITA, so I'd like to minimize work. Thanks.

AJ

Let the car cool down (not cold), then start it, feel lines for a reference.
The line that get warm first will be one going "TO" the cooler.
