How expensive will this be to fix?

Today I decided to install my coolant filter, egt probe and 4 inch mbrp exhaust. While dropping the old diamond eye down pipe out I hit the piping to get it to move and the dp hit a plug on top of the cylinder head on the furthest back passenger cylinder. I looked at the damage and the plug (connected to a harness) seems fine but the connection on the block had prongs that stuck up and they broke. The plug will fit the connection but it takes very little effort to pull it off. It looks like it may go to the injector in the head so it's got me panicing because I don't want it to pop off from engine vibrations and blow an injector or cylinder. Is this easy to fix or an I f'd? I haven't started it since and will be going to the dealership tomorrow to ask them for a estimate of what it'll cost.

In the mean time does anyone know if the connection in the block just screws out and is easy to replace or will the valve cover need to come off and am I going to be paying a crud ton of cash to fix my idiotic error?

If you're lucky they will have a connector for an injector laying there and they will be able to stuff the connector on your current injector, otherwise you will end up with a new injector.

it's an injector connector, either way you'll have to pull the valve cover and oil rail to access it. plan on buying an injector, most guys don't care enough to save good connectors off old injectors. I only keep about 4 or 5 around haha

So went to talk to the dealer and they suggested trying to zip tie it so it wouldn't disconnect. Going to give it a shot. Worst case it doesn't work and I'll go from there. The problem is not that it won't work its just that the wiring harness connection isn't fully secured to the connection on the block. I'll keep you guys updated

If you call a fuel injection shop they might be able to sell you just the hard plastic shell for the wiring.
