i have a flexible metal line underneath the throttlebody that has coolant pouring out of it and i can't find the name for it in my chilton or hayes books. Gotta get the name so i can buy a new one. Any ideas?

That' * your EGR pipe. It is probably OK. It is not supposed to carry coolant. Are you sure the coolant isn't coming from another place and just dripping onto and off of the pipe? The coolant is probably coming from a bad gasket on a nearby coolant passage. The supercharged guys can tell you more specifically.

I thought only exhaust flowed through the EGR stovepipe. Are you sure that is where the coolant is coming from? Perhaps its leaking from the TB gasket?

Yup. Just found it. T/B gasket it leaking right above it. I have ZZP'* T/B spacer so it comes out with pretty good pressure. Thought that pipe was leaking cause they're so close to eachother, couldn't see it pouring on there.
