Idle Stabilizer

Anybody know why the duck-neck shaped hose that goes from the Idle 
Stabilizer valve to the intake manifold stays collapsed during idle?  
Mine is obviously NA 10V I5.  I don't know if this is all different from 
the Audi's.  Whenever I gas it, the hose will open up.  But there's an 
aweful good suction collapsing that thing.  My idle is fine - is there 
something wrong with the valve (I think I might have the wrong one on 
there anyway, but I didn't the thing would idle smoothly if it weren't 

Also, I'd still like to hear from folks about lightening up the flywheel.
