Return line should be on the passenger side and pressure should be on the driver side.

Heading back to work in a few, but I will check my trans shop manual later and find it for you.

I could be wrong but I believe the one towards the front of the transmission is the pressure side...If I'm wrong it will be good to know since i have to plumb a cooler into my wagon at some point in time. The transmission out of my drag car had a hard line going from one fitting directly to the other. Now that it will be street driven I'll need a cooler.
