HPOP Oil Lines

Installing new HPOP on my 7.3 with 160k miles and not sure if oil lines should be replaced as well. There is an updated oil line version with 90 degree ends but run about $90 per side. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Any benefit to upgrading to newer design lines?

Any benefit woild be that their new. Also, if stranded anywhere, a local shop can make a line IF they had the rated psi hose available(atleast 4000psi and 300*+)

Never go by mileage on hoses, only by years HPOP hoses make a mess when they go and will leave you stranded, so if you are rocking the factory steel braded HPOP lines replace them.

CNC Fab for the win. Just got my HPOP line upgrade kit yesterday. They look dope. Comes with all new fittings and gets rid of those stupid snap fittings. Those are the bane of our existence.

I replaced my HPOP lines a while back with those fittings you linked and the updated OEM lines from RiffRaff. No regrets and I now have the confidence that they will be good for many years to come. The difference in the lines is dramatic when you compare them side by side.

Although, Corey at CNC Fabrication makes a great product and offers an alternative method of installing the lines. I would have no reservations about going the CNC Fab way next time in 150K miles...
