I had enough hose with the B&M but I bypassed the radiator cooler all together. I chopped the lines on the passenger side right before they turn and had them tapered. I had JUST enough hose too. I went looking for extra hose before I put it on and the hardware stores didn't have it. They said I should maybe try to gas and heating stores because it looked like that kind of higher pressure/high temp hose.
I had to get about 3 more feet of hose for my install. It's since been re-done and all converted to hard lines. I would just do the hard lines in the first place personally. You might also think about a magnetic in-line trans. filter while you're at it.
