One of the benefits of the RN swap is getting rid of the early oil cooler/lines. I was VERY happy about that when we swapped motors on the wife's car. No more leaky oil lines/connections. Even if you stay with an N engine, I would suggest the RN oil pan/cooler swap. I'll be doing that on my '97 T5 when I get under it for the manual swap.
+1 I really despise working on those oil cooler lines.
