Upgraded oil cooler

So I'm looking at doing an upgraded oil cooler (both on the ng900 and the Saudi). I did some searching, but did not find any answers to the questions I pose below:

I don't want to use a sandwich plate, I want to use the stock in/out in the oil filter housing.

Are the NG900 filter housings thread-in for the cooler lines? If so, what size? From what I can tell (it's painfully disgusting down there, I need to clean badly), the lines are thread in. But, on the OG9-3 block that I borrowed from moonracer, the cooler lines are press in. Whats the right answer?

With that information, I can order some -8an line, fittings, and an oil cooler.

kthnx in advance

I did another, more thorough search.

Fittings in the oil filter housing are M20x1.5

So the fittings in the filter housing are M20x1.5, but what are the sizes of the fittings on the oem oil cooler?

I've got to replace the lines on mine, but the cooler itself is in good shape.

Did you manage to get the lines off of the oil cooler without breaking them? Those things are a pain in the ass.
