I believe I have found the problem to my red hot exhaust manifold there a hole that cracked out of the intake manifold!!! 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 on the 4th cylinder intake pipe that leads into the head


Thanks for any help you can offer!!! :)

Easy enough to fix. Two choices:
1. Remove intake manifold and take it to a welding shop. Aluminum can be welded; both TIG Welding (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding or GTAW) and MIG Welding (Gas Metal Arc Welding or GMAW) use pure argon for aluminum materials; shouldn't cost too much.
2. Get an intake from a junk yard.
