Hand Automotive tire Finger Gas Thumb

This chipped off today while removing either the sc or the intake manifold. Seems like it would still seal up but idk. Do I need to try to repair or replace the manifold?

Correct answer would be to replace. The cheap answer would be to weld and go.
Personal side says fix it and keep on slamming gears. Professional side says replace it and do it correctly.

That is part of the intake manifold end plate / bypass . I broke mine when i dropped my intake manifold almost exactly the same section. I put it back together and drove it for 1k miles no issue at all even under boost. I did end up replacing it though as an excuse to get the dual pass endplate from zzp. If you dont wnat to spend the money for upgrade i definitely keep driving it.
