Help: EBPS tube problems

Today I decided I was going to clean out my EBPS tube and sensor. Ever since I've had the truck, it seemed like it was somewhat lagging during acceleration. I pulled the sensor off and there was a little soot inside. I then went to pull the tube, and that's where the problems started. The top side was fine, but I noticed there was some white wrapping on the bottom of the tube. On further inspection, it ended up that the tube actually wasn't even connected to the exhaust manifold.

If it was just a broken tube, there would be no issues as I could just replace it. Unfortunately with it broken completely off from the motor, I have no idea how I am going to fix it. What are my options? Help please .

Very judicious use of an easy-out should get that threaded portion of the fitting out of the manifold, since it's already hollow. Hit it with PB-Blaster or Kroil. Tap the extractor into the fitting until you see it start to turn counterclockwise. Then start turning it with a wrench or vise-grip.
