I think there's a company called Killer Glass that makes clear tubing sets (vehicle specific) for coolant lines.

I think the issue is not just heat, but pressure. Regular coolant hoses have braided threads all thru them to keep the hoses from expanding and blowing out. I don't think the clear vinyl tubes would withstand that pressure. Just think about how much pressure is released when you take off the radiator cap when the engine's hot.
