Since the tranny is side mounted(frnt wheel drive) would that be the bell housing side or radiator side?

That modulator isn't going to do a failing trans much good, and may harm it. I'd leave it be and do it during the rebuild.

It'* the only thing that a vacuum line leads to on the FRONT of your trans. Between the trans and radiator.

The rebuld will have to wait a bit since I'm going to be stick a few bucks replacing the *.C. and new tires.
900 for just a straight rebuild a decent price? with the tranny already pulled

It will give you firmer shifts, but not any increase in performance or speed that you'll ever notice. It will reduce wear on the clutches during the shifts. The reduced shift time might be responsible for a fraction of a second improvement on the 1/4 mile. But so small that you'd never know for sure.

thats the recall number they gave me, and it hasn't been fixed yet? if it leaks could it cause tranny problems besides the starting a fire like in tech info?
