Default TB hissing question..

Ok, so i've been trying to track down a suspected vacuum leak.. i was snooping around the IC pipes while the car was sitting idling, and i heard a loud hissing coming from the TB area, i squeezed the coupling where it met the last pipe before the TB that connected it to the TB, and the hissing got really quiet making it obvious there was a leak there..

So i re-clamp it, this time using two clamps, and fire it back up, and i still have that hissing coming from the TB.. does anyone else have that same hissing noise while idling? its pretty loud

The next thing ill check is the BOV, it could possibly be leaking under boost i guess, though it seems unlikely
