Broken water inlet

Got this with a complete motor over the weekend. Wondering if this could be fixed? Broken water line fitting. Can this be drilled out and taped, or maybe PVC glued?

Bought the motor for the heads and injectors, have another lower plenum already. Its a shame to just throw the broke one away without trying something on it. Will probably try to tap it and thread a fitting to go back in, to see if it can be done. Or maybe try to take enough material off to see if I can get the hose to fit. Any opinions?

Dave... Sometimes you just have to let go.

Ok. Ill admit it. I have, at times, fixed things that would have been cheaper and easier to buy new... Just to prove to myself that I could do it.

Remember though, this is a 10 year old piece of, notoriously bad, plastic that has been sitting on top of a hot engine for it's entire life.
Don't kill yourself trying...

Your probably right, but I just get that empty, sick feeling in my gut when I throw something away that might could be fixed. Saving money is not the issue, the issue is not giving up till there is no hope.

Nothing wrong with asking. But that intake is about a useful as a paternity test on the Maury Povich show.....
