Intake manifold swap

So I have a ford racing manifold from a town car that I thought would work but the coolant tube that runs underneath is in the way. I had a crappy dorman manifold and it fit fine. What I would like to know is if there is anything I can do to make it work and will one from a new edge fit? My car is a 98 with the pi swap. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The PI manifold should be the same. I know the one that came off my Vic motor is although I can't use it because its got warping under the tstat housing. The Vic/Marquis/Towncar intakes have a foam padded box around them that is not on the Mustang intakes and would need to come off.

Also be aware that the coolant tubes on the Vic/variants and the Mustang are not the same because of that stupid box the lower part of the intake sits in.

My problem is the coolant tube. Is there anyway to modify it to work?

I forgot that I had a coolant tube I had pulled from a new edge a few years back and it offsets the tube to the left of the motor to clear the lower part of the intake

Like I said, the intakes are the same but the coolant tubes are not. I've got a Vic motor on a stand in my garage right now lol.
