I did my oil setup the same as focusedaddiction except for I didn't "raise" my coil pack I used spacers to move the whole coil pack and bracket outward (towards battery) and my oil line went between the head and coil. Either way works!

You pretty much have to splice into your coolant lines, sorry. Just about everyone does it. If you splice into the 3/4" line coming off of the driver side of the plastic crossover tube, it will be clean and straightforward. Why are you against splicing?

You do know adding the water lines is optional
