Post chevy 454

I have a 98 454 fuel injected engine, brand new from the factory, and there are two connectors just in front of the oil filter. They appear to be fittings for tubes. I think they are normally connected to an oil cooler, but I'm not 100% on that. Are they a by-pass for an oil cooler or are they in-line for an oil cooler. I would like to now if they can be plugged or if I have to connect them together for proper oil flow. I will not be needing an oil cooler for this project.

The should have slots on either side of these fittings and yes they are for an oil cooler not a bypass... Plugging them will not harm anything they are just there for HD applications that have the external oil cooler...
