E28 Oil Cooler

This may come as a surprise but this post is about my BMW B220 marine engine.

The engine is the same as an E28 a 3.3l I6 M30. I am in the process of changing the oil cooler to a more sustainable one as the BMW Marine ones are no longer available.

The oil filter head and housing from an E28 is direct bolt on and good to go. My issue is with the connection. I need to find oil cooler line connections to connect to the oil filter housing(which already has OEM female ports for a cooler) to a hose which will then connect to my new marine cooler.

Are there aftermarket replacement connection pieces for fabricating custom hoses put there?

I knew an aircraft mechanic that used to have a source. I would look there.
