If you're referring to the elbows that go into the cylinder head between the intakes?  It's not worth the effort and faff trying just pull the crabs back by removing the rear air box rubbers.

That way it's done right 1st go.

That would be a selling fix botch job, do it right and do it once. Coolant is under a bit of pressure at that point and needs to be sealed properly

OE are Nitron, hopefully you've got the correct size both ID,OD and thickness, they have a habit of picking non commercially available sizes.  You fit the non standard, they work for a while, then start leaking.   :rolleyes [size=78%]  [/size]
