Is the piece you're talking about #7 on this diagram? If so you need a new thermostat housing, it should be around 40$ for a new one direct from ford and under an hour to change

This housing is directly attached to the upper radiator hose, what I am talking about is where the thermostat sits and is cracked, and that housing your talking about covers the thermostat and is bolted down with two bolts. The parts guy called it the entire intake manifold..
