[s-cars] Boost leak near ECU

The intake pressure/vacuum is brought to the ECU in the right foot well
via a line of tubing.  In later cars, there is also a filter near the
ECU.  (Early cars have it near the intake manifold in or by the A/C
plenum area; my 95S6 has it by the ECU.)  You probably popped a hose
near the ECU.

Just above the computer, towards (just thru?) the firewall makes a sound like a door missing from a 747.  Definitely not the boost gauge, line or t-connection but is still very loud inside the passenger footwell.  I replaced all small lines connected to and around the WG bpv, but it still sounds like it may be right at the firewall.  I will try to pull the passenger raintray on Sunday but does anyone have any experience with leaks in the area I've explained?  Any ideas what the culprit may be?
