Hey everyone. So I have a 94 eg8 that I'm doing a budget build on. It has a d15 z6 mini me and I bought a skunk2 clone intake manifold. Everything was going fine until I went to but the last coolant line on. The big one, that passes coolant from the block to the head. The issue is that when I went to put the hose one the brass hose inlet came out of the manifold and is now all loose. Is there any way to fix this or am I sol? Pic is of the part im talking about.

common problem. a quick search would tell you to tap threads in it and use a barb fitting
Sorry for sounding dumb but thread what part and a barb fitting for what? The whole brass part came out. I don't see what you said will fix it.


see that big ass hole left behind when the fitting fell out? take the intake with you to your local machine shop / hardware store and find a tap (metal cutting tool that creates threads, usually used in metal) tap said hole and then find a barb fitting with the same thread pitch as the tap.......teflon tape barb fitting threads, and tighten it down.
