Shokan sels the coolerr and hoses used as a set for around $200. They tend to break the fittings at the radiator ends so the sell only as a set. Dealer gets almost $200 for just one of the hoses.
or
You can get a line made up custom from your friendly local hydralic supply house.

Drew, Had a local hydraulic hose shop make upo a set for mine for cheap - the fittings at the cooler end broke (of course) so the shop had to braze in a set of universal fittings (still pretty cheap) On the Audifans.com Knowledgebase, there's a procedure for making up an oil cooler from a universal one (not a bad price). The cheapest I can suggest is going to the local wrecking yard and either finding a decent one from a wreck, or check out the old Mercedes wrecks - some of them had oil coolers like the 5k turbos - just slightly longer. I have decent one as a backup that I picked up (including hoses) for about 10 bucks. Cheers!
