Yes, that helps. I'll have to try to order that part.
How did you deal with the clamps? Cut them off and replace them with screw types?

Sometimes I can hear a small air leak when under boost. I think it is coming from the crankcase breather to intake manifold connection or the check-valve.
In the Bentley diagram (link below) this is the area of items 5, 6 and 7.
4 - Evaporative Emission (EVAP) canister purge regulator valve -N80-
5 - To connection on intake manifold, lower Throttle Body (TB) flange
6 - Check-valve
7 - To crankcase housing breather
#5... the rubber "T" is usually the culprit. I've replaced my own, and a couple on other folks cars. And no... it isn't too fun to get at... and the part is typically not easy to find.
