Default Showplanes Oil Cooler mount

Building RV-8 with Van's Lycoming XIO-360-M1B and I am interested in purchasing the RV-8 Oil Cooler Mount that Showplanes offers which attaches to the engine mount behind cylinder #1. Can someone using this oil cooler mount tell me if the oil cooler lines provided in the standard Van's FWF kit work, or do custom lines need to be purchased? I inquired with Showplanes, but they were not sure.

Just to save confusion...I believe you meant cylinder #3. Sorry I can't comment on the hose issue as I installed the oil cooler as per plans and am hoping for the best with oil temps. on my Superior IO-360. After seeing how much of the fin surface is not directly in the flow of cooling air I'm a little worried but will wait and see, before a re-do.
