Intake info..?

Hey guys my mustangs intake just cracked. I think lol. Its leaking antifreeze out below the thermostat, its spraying out on the intake and burning off. I'm honestly not 100 percent sure if its a bad gasket or if the intakes cracked. My question is, if I do have a cracked intake, what intake would you guys recommend I put back on my car?

Ford racing PI intake. Order them from late model restoration for around 230-240 bucks I believe.

Thanks guys. I looked on am and they had the ford racing pi intake for 220ish I think. I also heard to avoid dorman intakes, not sure why though. Should I look into an all metal intake? Or is it worth it since my car has 140,000 miles? I was planning on doing a coyote swap in a few years so I probably won't have this motor for more than 40-50,000 more miles.

Dorman also robs power i got a dorman and got lucky because i got mine when they ran out of the dorman and used the ford one which made me swear by them until i learned of the rarity of my case and that the normal dorman intakes are junk lol but yea a all metal intake weighs alot more and isnt worth the 5rwtq ull get at stock rpms they are only good for 7k+ rpms and if ur not gonna build the 2v and have a high revving motor its just not worth it
