    sorry the pic is so big, but what is this line called? I taped it up real right and it runs way better than it ever has.

    broken end is connected to the intake manifold near the throttle place, it connects to a box that has two more connections going into it, I don't remember what the box name was on the schematics

    Looks like it's the EVAP line from the purge solinoid to the TB.

    There should be a second line comming of of that box you mentioned evap solinoid (purge) which should head towards the rear of the car.. The solinoid is triggered to open @ sertain times to draw up and burn fuel vapors..

    There (iirc) should also be a plug connected to it with 2 wires.. If yours has 3 hoses on it one will run to the charcoal canister, the other to the fuel tank. The 3rd is your broken vent line I mentioned.

    I'm glad you got it figured out.. The fly by wire systems are actually more simplistic than the older setups. I just have one hose from the rear of the car to my solenoid and it (solenoid) has a nipple with an O-ring and the whole unit just bolts on the side on my intake..

    If you just need the rubber elbow you can find them usually on the "help" rack @ just about any auto parts it will take a little force to remove it though and try not to twist it back and forth too much. If not, you'll be asking for the 90* elbow for the EVAP vent to intake manifold connection. Or you can simply pick up a length of VACC hose there and throw the hard line away. Just be sure to zip-tie it up so it does'nt hang down or kink.

    alright I will have to look into it, It has been taped up since I bought the car but I never took it into thought, so naturally re taping it twice as much is the quick fix

    Also the Throttle response is so much better, I swear it added 10 hp back

    Here I made this up for quick ref. Just shows various simple ways the vacc line can be done/routed.. Pick the one that's closest and there you go..

    thank you for the chart, mine appears to be 1 or 2, i would rather replace just the head since it seems the easiest/cheapest

    Okay cool... I did'nt include the other lines in the diagram but you get the picture. Just watch how rough you are with the force you may need to remove the elbow. Those hard plastic lines like to break..
