[s-cars] Weird boost issue

As an aside to this issue, when I was troubleshooting my stutter and whoosh,
I checked to insure that the hoses were intact on the moisture separator and
found that there is NO moisture separator on my S-6.  To be certain that I
am looking at the right location and hose, I had pulled the black plastic
cover off the firewall area and looked where the Bentley indicates it should
be.  All I saw was a black rubber line coming from off the engine going into
a greenish colored plastic semi-hard line that went through the firewall.

Right line?  And if so, should I run, not walk and get a moisture separator

If you plug the hose that goes to the WG or to the WGFV you will get low 
boost as there is no boost pressure to help the WG stay shut.   I tried it 
once.    I think the WGFV is not working.
