Well the magnet collects the metal particles in the fluid, preventing them from flowing though the transmission and possibly causing more problems, so having two magnets offers the chance of keeping the transmission fluid that much cleaner. Will it have any noticeable effect on the function of things? No, not likely, but it couldnt hurt and might very well extend the life of the transmission.

Oh and the magnefine filter Im going to try is both a paper type filter medium as well as a magnet, offering that much more filtering to the fluid. I plan on placing it on the return line to the transmission from the cooler.
I spoke with Greg at magnefine and he assured me there is no restriction of flow or change in pressure by using the filter, so Im going to give it a shot. I found a number of forums where people discussed using them and I didnt find anything truly bad about them. Its recommended to change the first filter after 15k and then 30k each time after that.
