Default 03 Turbo w/broke dipstick

So today i was going to get in my PT and noticed alot of oil under it.When i opened the hood and started looking i relized the tube the dipstick goes in was broke off at the bottom where it connects to the block.It happend because i have the plastic intake manifold instead of the aluminum one and when i switched them i didnt screw it in at the top b/c the bracket was all bent up and wouldnt connect or anything.Where can i get a new tube and is it an easy fix?also is there a diagram somwhere online or that somone can show me to fix this?

Bummer, you need to fabricate a bracket at the top, but I guess you know that now.
