Before I spend next weekend poking around underneath the damn thing, does anyone have any BTDT's that could save me a little time (and $$$).

Sounds like the Michelin Man hose which runs from the intercooler to
the throttle body.  If you feel underneath it's probably split.  Stay
well away from the dealer when purchasing a new one.
