And if you are unable to get one from one of the vendors, I would suggest a junk yard depending on what manifold you're going with?!

Well I'm going with the Edelbrock 5.0 Performer Intake manifold and the thread holes are smaller then the stock ones!

Is it new?
They usually furnish at least some of the fittings you will need if they are different from stock.

Your other choices are:
Drill and retap the hole to fit the fitting you have.
Adapt the fitting down to the size you need with a 1/2"x 3/8" pipe reducer and 3/8" nipple.
Or hope you get lucky and find what you need at an auto parts store or salvage yard.

In that case, I bet a Lowe's or Home depot might have a reducer or bung in their pluming department!
Hope that helps...

just remember that you did that incase you run into insufficient vavuum problem down the road . i would think you might lose a little volume on your vacuum.most likely not because your after market intake might create more vacuume than your stock one.just something to keep in mind.

Re: I Need some help?

any parts store with a "help" section has them or hardware store. they arent hard to find at all. dont worry bout nipple sizes... the only one u need to pay attention to is the brake booster hose. the others arent critical, as long as they got sum sort of vacuum you will be fine
