I just started smelling some coolant burning off and noticed that the intake manifold is leaking where the thermostat housing is...the car stating running rough and the check engine light came on..well it was a cylinder 6 misfire..so i replaced the coil and it runs fine now, but when i replaced it i noticed coolant on the spark plug when i pulled it...I want to replace the intake manifold...where and which one would be the best to buy? I have a 2002 P71..thanks a lot

That's for someone doing a PI intake swap who has a pre '01 motor. You have a PI motor so it will be a direct swap. You probably have a model that was one of the last few to use the intake with the plastic crossover.

If you have an 02 model like you stated, then you should already have the upgraded manifold that's half plastic / half metal. Odd that it's leaking. I haven't heard of any of them coming with the all plastic version.

Since he has an 02 he just has the PI intake stock, it doesnt have the aluminum crossover.
The sputtering and CEL is the coolant fowling out the #5 spark plug

Some 2001 & 2002 models have all plastic PI Intake Manifolds.

Usually when the thermostat cracks, the coolant flows into the #5 clyinder's spark plug causing it fowel out the plug, causing a sputter.
if you do have the intake with the aluminum crossover, check the thermostat housing piece, in fact i had replaced mine cause it was pitted real bad, check yours to see if the O-ring seal is in good shape, or if its pitted real bad.

The o-ring for the t-stat housing is probably broke, are you SURE you have an aluminium crossover, I could've swore that started in 03.
