No this is a narrow rubber breather that runs vertically and was obscured by the large oil IC pipe at the front (rear of the car) of the engine bay.

I'm pretty sure it goes to the underside of the IC rad?? I'll check it at the weekend and get a picture.

It could be that the pipe has a split or is losing vacuum under boost conditions?

As I said, mine was not actually connected at the top (I forgot to reconnect it when I re-fitted the IC).

I secured it in place, made sure the hose clamp was nice and tight then tested more scary risks to my dental work!!
