Has anyone engineered a workaround for the leaking plastic intake manifolds?

I really don't want to go the long way; removing the throttle body, vacuum lines, injector rails, etc. Has anyone found a sealant that works on whatever composite the manifold is (don't know what kind of plastic it is so how can you buy a sealant), or just taken the heater hose coming from the firewall normally going through the manifold and creating another problem; and routed it straight forward along the valve cover to the back of the water pump?
Has anyone thought outside the box on this?

I presume you're referring to a late 90s TC. I had a '97 Grand Marquis back then. The fix was to replace the manifold with an improved design. It cost me $1000, which I later got back as a result of a class action lawsuit. As far as I know, there isn't a workaround.
