Hole in intake manifold
So I'm back and I believe I have found the problem to my red hot exhaust manifold there a hole that cracked out of the intake manifold!!! It's about the size of an average adult human pointer finger but my problem is how do I fix this hole it is clearly sucking in air and making my car super lean I believe that this intake on this car is aluminum so wielding would be out of the question or expensive and the space between is very cramped. The hole is between the 3rd and 4th fuel injector and is sitting right next to/on the 4th cylinder intake pipe that leads into the head.

I do have a picture but I cant post it here idk why...

any help would be apricated

JB Weld it!

Host the picture somewhere and link it here.

If you want to get going quickly and cheaply, I like the JB Weld idea. Maybe with a dime or something to plug the hole and use the epoxy to stick it there and make it air tight.

A little better would be to drill a clean hole, thread it, and run a bolt in as a plug. Use red lock-tite, green lock-tite, or JB Weld to hold it in place. Cut/grind the bold flush if you want it to look better.
