benp Unrelated to the current discussion, but as requested I've attached the instructions that JHS provided with the oil coolers. They leave a bit to the imagination to say the least.

The aluminum plug .550" would probably work the plastic cap at 5/8" is way too large.

I don't see the anodizing as a mega plus since it's pretty much a hidden part. Not really afraid of the corrosion aspect.
Material used looks to be the same with the same design

To plug the coolant hoes there are several option and they cost less than the difference in price
like this

or this for a billet option (like ukrs)

or even just get a hose and bypass the old heat exchanger

1/2" barbed aluminum plug is what we need.

I was able to use a 1/2" brass barbed fitting with a cap. It is not a very elegant solution but will get me going for me track weekend coming up. Ideally an aluminum barbed fitting maybe 3/4" long. I picked up a length of SAE J30R7 line and the intent was to save the OEM pieces if I ever needed them. The brass parts are heavy and large, space is an issue on the engine side.

crispietofu Ukrs is the only one supplying the plugs. Wasn't the group buy for a different brand because it was cheaper ?

ducdiver I thought only the UKRS ones came with plugs?

MacBandit Are you sure? Mine didn’t show it on the page or list it in the details but were in the box when I got it.

Our "group buy" did not include the plugs. :(
