Do I need to remove my intake from the motor 1st to rethread a holes outlet? on 1997 Chevrolet Suburban 1500

My outlet has a quick release that was crossthreaded.I took it out and tried to replace with a new 1 but threads were to far out.Now I have to rethread hole.Can it be done still on the motor or does it need to come off?

Are you talking about the heater hose outlet? IF so just rethread on engine, wont hurt a thing. May have to use a bushing with replaement.
