Found my receipt. It was 9 ft. I probably had a little left over and lines have plenty of slack so that I can take off the front bumper without much issue. The oil cooler stays mounted to the bumper.

I just ran across this thread and I am just curious, for the people concerned about high oil temperatures, how high does it get on your oil temperature gauge on the cluster. With street driving mine generally stays right between the 210 mark and the dot to the left of it, and in traffic and/or track it right on 210. I've never seen the needle get any higher. How accurate is this gauge?

Search how to reach the secret menu on the instrument cluster and check oil temp from there. I can tell you my temp gauge is not accurate before or definitely even worse after I changed my oil temp sensor.

If you're at 210F (or even close) on the track, you're not sending it hard enough I run an RK oil cooler, heat exchanger delete, CSF rad, 90/10 distilled/coolant + water wetter...and will be 260-270F on the track all day. The gauge is pretty accurate when compared to the secret menu number. I think it's safe to say you're good.
