Looks really good.

Looks like you have it in the right spot. Air flow towards any oil/PS/tranny cooler is just as important as the cooler itself.

So i decided to make my own as well... 60$ all together in parts and its about 3x as big as the stock one. This is the way to go!

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/bmm-70265/overview/ the cooler I used, it takes a beating so much better than the others. I destroyed my previous cooler to debris damage , this one has been on for over a year, no fin damage at all.

Ditto.

You can save a few bucks buying a tru-cool unit from racepartswholesale. Im 95% sure the b&m units are made by Tru-cool. Same specs and dimensions

Im planning to replace both lines and just skip all the way to the next hardline, does anyone know the size of the hardline?
Another thing I was thinking of was taking out that second hardline an with my 6AN to barb fitting right into the rubber hose. Would that be okay? I am planning to run nylon braided flex hoses.
