Default Heater Hose Assembly or Heater Return Line?

2001 Ford Mustang GT (4.6L, V8) Single Cam.

Hose coming out of the firewall and into the ??engine, radiator, or somewhere? *thinking it may be the heater return line*, started leaking last night. When investigating the nipple coming off the engine, radiator, or somewhere, broke!!! Is there a replacement?

You will need to replace the intake manifold, get the FRPP replacement. Stay away from the Dorman unit sold by the FLAPS.

BTW, that is the heater core inlet...

I haven't searched too much on the forum but I'm having an issue finding the hose thats missing from this pic. Local parts houses just have molded hoses, Nothing with the plastic couplers.

It's an adapter sort of thing, separate from the hose--Motorcraft # KT83; Rockauto has them for $14.11...

The hose from the intake manifold nipple to the heater core is the inlet, the outlet is the pipe that runs through the valley under the intake manifold and to the rear of the water pump housing:
