Do the flexi pipes from the engine block to the oil radiator differ from the SEC to the SEL?

I have an SEC front bumper on my SEL and have yet to move the oil radiator back as per SEC to get the fog lamp installed.

I have the SEC brackets, and it looks like i need to get a bracket fixing welded to the chassis rail to do it properly.

But I have noticed the pipes are a little tight when the radiator is in the SEC position...or do they just need adjusting to suit? Anybody have any knowledge?

The U.S. market gasoline engine cars usually came without oil cooler.
Many gray market imports / Euro's came with it. I believe the pipes for the oil cooling circuit are connected from a different (to U.S. spec) oil filter bottom / base / bracket, via a oil temp thermostat.
There are plenty of threads in the forum archive. Why not try a 'oil cooler' search?
