Had a great time on track at Sonoma Raceway yesterday with NASA Norcal. Meet a bunch of cool folks, saw a lot of awesome cars, watched a couple of races and learnt a lot from my instructor. Unfortunately, on the last session the intake manifold broke at the nipple where the heater core hose attaches to and spewed coolant all over. Luckily I was in a good spot on track with an access road for the tow and rescue to come get me off track without much distubance to the rest of the group. What's upsetting is that the intake manifold is the revised FRPP one with the aluminum crossover. It was on the car for roughly 10k miles only. The car is a 1999 GT that came with the all plastic intake manifold that is known to crack and leak near the thermostat housing. Question is, should I replace the intake manifold with another FRPP one? Should I go Dorman instead? Should I pay $$$$$ for an aftermarket all aluminum one? Also, I do not have a tow hook/strap and the tow driver rescued me by strapping to the front sway bar. Any recommendations for this issue as well? Thanks!
