size of tranny cooler hose

I've seen this before but couldn't find it today by searching.
What's the recommended kind of hose that will work best the transmission line when installing a tranny cooler? Read somewhere that if you just ask for transmission line, they give you something crappy. And it's 3/8th's, correct?

I thought the steel tranny lines were 5/16? 3/8 would probly clamp down enough but I think you would be better off with 5/16 fuel oil vapor line

Allen,

Use 3/8" ID transmission hose. I highly recommend Aeroquip socketless hose in a -6 size. That hose will never let you down and mine is almost 10 years old now.

You can also use 11/32" ID hose if needed. You'll need about 10 feet total and a fitting to adapt to the radiator fitting. If you are running the coolers in series, tap off the top fitting on the raditaor as it's the return to the transmission.
