Looking for a coolant U tube

Hey y’all finally got to open up my car and found I need a new coolant U tube. I must confess to having trouble finding one though. Anyone have any leads?

Just plug the two holes in the engine, it isn't needed.

and if you're going to replace it, although I don't have one on my car, i bet you could take the tube to an auto parts store and they'd cut you off a length of whats needed, as opposed to buying one from lotus

It was used for a water/oil heat exchanger when the engine was used in Toyota cars.
Connect the two taps with a piece of the hose used with the u-tube, or buy some plugs at your local auto store.

I have a couple laying around if you want one. Shoot me a DM, cover shipping and you can have one. But like the others said, plug the ports.
