Probably the heater hose that hooks into the back of the intake.

I like your answer! I thought hose "connection" but hose itself makes good sense. Any tips or tricks for replacement?

Well the way they have those connected, it is possible it is the connection also. You have to pinch the plastic tab and work it out. They make new connectors, and molded heater hose for that one. Also by the looks of it there is a coolant bypass hose that goes by things to rub on. So just check the heater hoses & connections.
