If someone gets me dimensions for the plugs I can make up a bunch.

Custom metalwork. PM me with your ideas.

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.

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 http://k-tuned.3dcartstores.com/Heat...lly_p_173.html

or this for a billet option (like ukrs) http://fleeceperformance.com/billet-...off-plugs.html

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

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

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.
