Exclamation Leaking Coolant! Help!!

hello...i just installed an aftermarket cool air intake to my 1995 BMW 525i (e34). well, i kinda installed it. it seems that the factory intake enclosure had a place to plug in two hoses with coolant flowing through them. my aftermarket intake does not have this. i decided to crank the engine up and see how the new intake worked. it sounded great and everything except for the fact that coolant was flowing at a fairly high rate out of those hoses all through the engine compartment and spread all over the floor of my garage. any one know of aftermarket parts i can buy to plug these hoses up again??? (they seemed to simply be plugs, but i'm not expert on this particular intake. if i'm wrong feel free to correct me)

Figured it out

nvm guys i figured it out. its actually pretty stupid that i didnt know this sooner. i just removed the piece that sends the coolant in loops from the factory intake enclosure and put let it hang from the hoses in the engine compartment. i hope this helps anyone else who is planning on getting a cold air intake for their e34.
