You can get 3,4,5 and 6ft lengths. I had a 4 foot braided, it barely reached the front of the block in basically the same spot.

I doubt 3 ft will work

Figure it under the radio up to the speedo cable hole back over to the distributor area

3 feet sounds long until you make a couple of bends and turns

so I guess the six feet will do
If you are using a copper line then go with 6' and you can either cut it or loop it to make it work, if you were going with braided line then you would want to get it close to the length you need without being too short. Either will work fine.
