Bottom hose should go to boost line.

This is the stock installation. Bottom metal line is going to intercooler and top one is just a short piece of pipe.

Ill have to see about the compression and leakdown at this point it runs and drives like nothing is wrong and I will also look into putting a line on the top of the WG to improve on the current setup. So any pinging would case the compression rings to shatter? So the engine could be tested to be good even with shattered rings?

I still need to find the place this hose went in the first place?? The only place on the IC that a hose would fit, it is taken? I was hoping from the pictures someone might comment on this? It can been seen going from the IC to the throttle body. Is this how everyones IC is?
