Lightbulb Which metal tube to override the intake coolant loop?

Hello everyone,

A while back a fellow member posted a guide that showed an U-shape metal tube that was purchased in a hardware store- this was used to override the intake coolant loop, I have searched and searched with no success, does anyone know what is the metal tube that was used? Many thanks in advance.

There is no need for this, just plug the holes with a clamp and a rubber cap.

You can do what i did on mine. Take one of the existing rubber hoses from that loop and cut the one with the 90deg bend shorter and re-use two of the clamps to make it fit directly to the ports. Picture below.

Umm presumably he was talking about the T-stat heater line? But even if he is talking about that one, you can just plug those holes as well. They come plugged on a Toyota.

I apologize, I was referring to the throttle body coolant loop
