I double clamped the connections with a factor spring clamp and a factory screw clamp for the sake of being the exact same as it was factor. The one short section of hose could be eliminated by connecting those two metal lines with a compression connector or a flare connnector. I debated that but decided to go with a hose to allow some movement and it lets me go right back to stock if I wanted to for some reason. ON the metal lines I made I again soldered on a ferule to create a hose barb. I picked up some Gates 3/8 Transmission Cooler hose from Car Quest, it took about 2 feet.
I have also been monitoring my transmission temps by installing a Type K thermocouple probe in the port on the transmission using a 1/8 NPT to 1/8 compression adapter.
