It would really help if you tell me if it was a sw1 or sw2?Also which nipple are we talking about a coolant nipple or vacuum nipple?Do you have a metal or plastic intake?

It's a 2000 SW1. The nipple is for the coolant. The intake is plastic.

So your manifold is plastic?The nipple is the small top one on the manifold in the diagram I posted?If so your best bet would to be get a used manifold at pick apart and replace the whole manifold. You can try repairing it with epoxy but if it were my car I would replace the manifold.

Thanks for the info.
I've already tried the epoxy (didn't work for long), so finding a used manifold is the next step.

Just get the new improved intake gasket they sell to put on the used intake so you don't have any coolant leak's.
