Default Damnit!!! Coolant Leak--easy fixes??

Well, got a DIY setup installed...popped open the laptop to start intial tuning...checked everything, looks good. Start setting timing and....

Pssssssssssssssssst...

Luckily it was coolant and not fuel...but it still sucks...

It's a pinhole (maybe a tiny bit bigger),,in the coolant line that goes from the back of the head, runs under the fuel rail to...? (maybe tb)

Looking to see if there's any easy fixes(that will hold) or if I'm gonna have to start taking things apart to get there...

Appreciate the help...

Probably goes to the OEM water/oil cooler, or to the throttle body. You have to replace the hose. Go through the passenger fenderwell and/or under that side of the car and you'll reach it. The hose isn't anything special, forgot the size, but I think it might be 5/16 or 1/4" size.
