    Well, that is the problem, there is no easy way to just plug in the new 
lines.  Some of us have been thinking that it may be possible to weld AN 
fittings onto the end of the stock metal tubing and then running new lines 
between those.  Aluminum fittings could even be welded onto the oil filter 
housing to run new lines to a new oil cooler too.  Once the fittings are 
welded, it is just a matter of ordering parts out of a Summit catalog!  I 
would talk to the mechanic you know and see what he has done, and if he can 
do the same for you if you are not willing to get your hands dirty.  HTH
