the red line makes it look that way, but it's going to a tapped fitting before the turbo.

I didn't think the bov, or a missorted vac line could cause the leak, but the fact that they both happened at the same time was odd enough for me to ask...

Then what's the duct tape covering if it's not where the line WAS going?

On my old 240 (worst car ever) i had my alternator/WP belt slip off on the interstate..popped her back on two miles later fell off again..finally figured out why it was doing it had to walk about 5 miles to an auto parts store for a belt (didn't find it the second time) got it back on and the battery was dead. Finally got a jump from a buddy and the ******* starter had friend at the same time....when **** hits the fan the **** HITS THE ******* FAN. Moral - even though things happen at the same time doesn't by any means mean they're related.
