Help very confused

So I have had a issues with anti freeze leaking into one of my spark plug wells tore down the intake manifold and found that there's a missing bolt hole in the manifold so it's not sealing all the way maybe I'm crazy and this normal but wouldn't there be a hole for a perfect seal

There is not a bolt that goes there. The heads are actually cast the same left and right and are interchangeable so if it were on the drivers side that hole would go to the thermostat

Also make sure you have the intake gaskets on the correct sides they are different left and right

Take better pics... Where was it leaking from? Do you have a metal crossover? If not, get a new intake. If you do have a metal crossover, is coolant seeping out from where it bolts to the plastic? All the plastic intakes fail after awhile, just a matter of when. Never get a used one, never get a doorman or non Ford PI unit. The correct replacement is $215 on AM/LRS.

Hmmm you could have a warped head but are you sure that the heater hoses or nothing else back there is leaking and its for sure the intake?

Also are you properly torquing it to 22ft lbs and in the correct torque sequence? You can't just bolt it on and tighten it down any old way.
