    I wonder how your car work without that is connected? If I rememeber correctly that should go lower part of intake manifold, can be really difficult to install, but as a first aid try to connect it even some vacuum source in upper part of intake manifold. OT: How is your brake fluid level? It looks that it is near empty?

    I figured out where it goes, it goes right behind the ETA, luckily I had to remove my ETA. I think it's full but I double check

    Correct. It connects to the vacuum fitting at the rear lower intake manifold. VERY hard to access without removing the MAF+ETA.

    For sure, without taking the ETA, the car needs to be cold, and your fingers need to be like gumby

    I've noticed that mine EZL vacuum line is broken. I fix it, but what issues could it cause?
    It was probably broken since i bought the car
