Need help bad, massive coolant leak behind my alternator.

99 GT 5 spd, was out driving today and when I stopped a bunch of steam was coming out from the hood. I drove home as fast as I could and once everything got cooled down I refilled the anti freeze and started it up and it looks like a damn green waterfall behind the alternator. What the hell did I do? My buddy says to check for a busted coolant bypass hose to the water pump, others have said it could be a cracked intake manifold which I hope it's not cause i can in no way afford that. Any ideas on what I should look at when I tear it down tomorrow?

Pressure test the system. As 71 said, sounds like line or H20 pump.
