Okay, now I understand what you want to do. The only downside of eliminating the bypass is slower warmup. Until the transmission fluid reaches a certain temperature, the torque converter will not lock up. I think I would favor the Dieselsite delete kit.

I've been trying to understand why this is a bad thing. Other than if cooler gets plugged or messed up in someway then there's no fluid for back of transmission. If you keep up on everything like fluid changes and filter then I can't see where it would hurt anything. But Mark the smartest transmission guy I know he said it would hurt my tranny and probably destroy it in someway. I kind of see his point but just removing the spring and ball from banjo bolt seems like it would give it better flow. And let it run more efficient and cooler. Whatcha think am I going the wrong way here or what

I think you should use the Dieselsite kit. As I said, the only downside to more flow through the cooler is slower warmup.

Ok thank you for the advice I'll talk to Mark and see if he will think the same way. I really can see much of a down side if I just remove the bottle neck to let it have restrictions

Well I put trans gauge on my tranny and got a reading between 140 and 150 seems to be running ok but I pull a 16ft trailer with around 6k pounds and was wondering if you guys think putting a fan on cooler would better my chances on not heating up to much when I tow my trailer

You don't need to worry unless the fluid gets over 220 degrees. If you are concerned, a full synthetic fluid such as Amsoil is a lot more heat-resistant than standard fluid.

You should do a complete change. Your torque converter should have a drain plug, making it relatively easy. The Amsoil Signature (in my link) is a multi-vehicle fluid, Mercon-compatible, and is considerably better. That's why it's 15 bucks a quart. You will need 17 quarts for a dry fill, even with draining the torque converter a quart or 2 will remain unless you also drop the valve body.

Thanks for the info. But 15 bucks a quart is a lot of money. I'll have to put back a little at a time until I have enough money to do the job. If it's that good how often do I have to change it, every 30k miles??
