I just found the same issue with my coolant pipe while I had it apart for a valve lash check. It isn't leaking yet, but I think the gouge might be too deep to just let it be without putting the P clamp back on. Does anybody know how thick those pipes are? Looks like over $100 to replace it and the clamps and hoses at each end.
