Agreed, I think 3/8 is too restrictive.

If memory serves, isnít the supply and return fittings on the transmission restricted by a smaller port within the fitting itself? Something has to restrict the flow of the ATF for heat dissipation when passing through the cooler.
So it would be of no benefit to run larger lines than OEM, or that port size.

Or am I thinking of a different transmission all together? Somewhere I have seen this smaller port in the fitting before.

Yeah your correct. The ID of the fittings are probably 5/16 or 3/8.
