Keep the requests/suggestions coming!

Also, do any of you believers have an opinion on non-braided pushlite or pushlock lines versus more traditional RU AN type lines/fittings? For those unaware, pushlock is a lower-cost alternative to traditional braided AN but does not allow reusable dis/reconnect (you have to run a new line because you have to destroy the line to remove it from the adapter, which is reusable.

Line savings could be around $30-$50 depending on what two lines you are comparing. In terms of actual performance, IMO there is no difference at the oil pressures and temperatures our cars produce- it's more of an appearance and convenience thing. I figure I can just provide part numbers to make that an option. Line lengths would still be the same.
What about an option? So the base kit can be $30-50 cheaper than if you want the other lines you can select from a dropdown. For me if you can make a complete kit to retrofit an oil cooler for around $7-800 then I would buy it right away
