Ah yes, that would be the vac hose I just replaced.  The one that I had
to remove the ISV to get to the manifold, the heat shield on the back of
the motor, and the bypass valve itself :)

I did check the bypass valve manually by sucking on it and it seemed to
be OK, but of course I can't be sure.  Brett thinks it could be the WGFV
so I will check that tonight.
