I just had my transmission rebuilt and am going to put in an additional cooler and a filter. Does anyone know approximately the PSI and GPM is coming from the pump? Need to know in order to get the adapter. Also the fluid that was put in was mercon v after the rebuild. The guy stated that everything in the rebuild kit was designed for mercon v. Is this true?

Thanks in advance.

I am curious why you need these figures.I do not know them myself.
A good engine oil filter with a descent inlet-outlet holder connected to the oil line that goes to the radiator will do the job fine.I am not quite clear what you plan to do with the adaptor.
Three years ago Ford stopped the Mercon and substituted it with Mercon V.No problem, unless someone mixes the two oils, which is not your case.

I am having difficulties sourcing a kit locally. I can purchase the adapter and filter separately but I want to make sure I don't get one that can't handle the volume produced by the pump. Here is what I can get locally:

It only does 5GPM so I want to make sure that is sufficient and don't need more. This is the filter I would be using with it:

Thanks.

Ok, I see what you mean by "adapter".
After checking with my tuners they gave me these line flow info for my 2004 CD4E.
Maximum line pressure: 195psi
Maximum GPM: 3.1
