Post How to: B&M Trans Filter ATX

mitsubishi thought that a LIFETIME Filter was a good idea. Oh and if you ever WANTED to change it, you'd have to rip apart the entire transaxle

So here we go with the parts list.


P/N Nomenclature Price link for reference

MMOC-F Mishimoto Trans Cooler $146 http://www.summitracing.com/parts/mio-mmoc-f/overview/

80277 B&M Transmission Filter $35 http://www.summitracing.com/parts/bmm-80277

01320 Royal Purple MAX ATF $12 Max ATF | Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid | Royal Purple

ROY30-8A Royal Purple Filter $12 http://www.summitracing.com/parts/chc-30-8a

15721 Derale Thermo Switch $25 http://www.summitracing.com/parts/der-15721

(the links are for quick reference, pricing is based off of amazon) Total investment required for an actual lifetime fluid filtering system? About 300 Bones. But if you dont intend to autocross or hotlap the tranny at a road course or dragstrip, its only 150. Go with a cheaper fluid other than Royal Purple, could probably do it for $75 bucks. But this is top of the line materials.

[size=18pt]PHASE 1: ROYAL PURPLE W/ B&M FILTER[/size]

Principle of Operation.

Install filter kit intercepting the cooler to trans line. If you understand this concept, the following pictures should tell the rest of the story. Super easy install for me. I hope to see other ATX guys rocking my same setup.

For this task you need the kit and oil listed above.. And in addition:
(1) 10 x 1.5 bolt.
(1) Washer
(1) 3/8" Barbed Coupler
(3) Worm Gear Clamps
(2) 3' lengths of 5/16" fuel hose

PHOTO TIME!!!

In theory couldn't you just run the hose from the radiator trans cooler to the filter, instead of buying a completely separate one? Then go back to the trans.

Yes, except that this mishimoto one is bigger (more cooling) and I just like throwing parts at my car.

When I was on buttonwillow, as I ran my laps, the shifting got more and more LAZY and sloppy due to heat. for around town and drag racing, I'm sure the factory cooler is fine, but for roadracing or autocross, hells no.

Hey man,
I agree the transmission gets super sloppy and laggy when it heats up. I can tell after a half hour of highway driving. In addition to that, when you let the transmission cool for some time, it becomes quick and responsive again.

My question is, is the ATF fluid under pressure or anything? And how much stays in the stock cooler when you remove it? Looking to add my own cooler in the next month or so.

Outside of the transmission itself no it is not PRESSURIZED, it has FLOW yes, but no pressure. What do you mean remove the stock cooler? I'm still rocking the factory cooler ATM. If you drop the factory cooler and add in the mishimoto one, you would just guesstimate, drive around, recheck, and add / remove as necessary.

I just reread this and it doesnt make any sense to me. There are a total of 4 lines for the transmission. 2 are for trans fluid to and from cooler. And 2 are coolant lines to and from radiator.

they also sell inline trans filters which is 10x quicker and easier and they are recommended to be changed every 30k miles. plus they are like $20. they are just as efficient and come in multiple sizes to accommodate multiple applications. just split the return line and clamp each end onto the ends of the filter. positive flow is labeled on the filter. do not put it backwards

Yes. The two that are for the trans make the trans cooler. That's how the radiator works. So I was just wondering couldn't you splice one of the lines and run it that way. I think it would do the same but I could be wrong.

Dog I am sorry I am soo lost... If you could draw me a picture er something maybe I'd get it.

As for you fearlezz... woulda been nice to know on the nation about this. I wouldn't have spent the $40 I did for my setup. I had this up on the nation long before I actually did the install.
