Inline Transmission Filter/trans Radiator

I'm really thinking about doing this mod real quick, but I'd love some opinions first.

What is the best type/brand of inline transmission fluid filters? I'm looking for best filteration with the best flowrate, with easy of changeability important, but a distant third.

What is the best type/brand of transmission radiator? I'm not going for two-radiator method, I'd rather seperate it completely from the engine's coolant radiator. After looking around, would a unit that comes with a thermastat and fan for the radiator be useful for when the car is at slow speeds, or is that a scam?

Oh, I have a digital camera, know how to use it, and will document the process when I work on it.
I'll start on it ASAP, while I wait for Bob to PM me back on FSTB details.

Is the 1/2 size filter really better than the 3/8, or is it just the connection sizeon the ends of the filter? They look the same in the pictures, but I could be wrong. I would think that just purchasing the 3/8 would save a lot of trouble.
OK, that makes sense. It all pretty much has to do with aerodynamics of the hose and connectors, not the filter. I tryed to find a magnefine filter locally here in South Florida and people looked at me like I was crazy. This is the same look I got when I wanted to put KYB struts on my Grand Am a few years back. They think if it isn't a sports car, it doesn't need it. I hate clueless, sales clerks that have no desire to help someone.
Hey SHOZ123, I am not sure exactly which adapters that are needed. That website has hundreds of those things.

Damn I must of scrolled down too far and missed a crap load of posts. Anyways, thanks for all the help, I need all I can get sometimes. LOL
