    Unhappy LS1 intake manifold part

    I am building a new project and as usual things don't always go smoothly. I was fitting the engine in the compartment and broke the plastic power brake connector on the back of the intake I went to the dealer and I would have to purchase the entire manifold to get this twist end connector for mucho bucks. Does anyone have any parts available. I appreciate any information or leads to this part.
    Thanks,
    carjunkie

    that part is really a mystery..you cant remove that part without breaking it...so that is why they sell it as a whole sorry...if you need a new intake...get a ls6 ..bolts right on to a ls1

    dropping the engine ??? that's ridiculously more difficult then a swap. i have swap my intake 5+ times fighting a vacuum leak and am able to do it in roughly 8 minutes (uninstall ) then 8 more minutes for the install.
