Default 2003 PT Cruiser GT vacuum hoses/lines????

Ok so I've been working on my wife's cruiser for almost 3 months now. My latest repair was replacing the turbo. I've got everything on the upper side of the engine back in place. I found a rubber hose about 3/8 inner diameter with no place to go. It's form naturally goes to the firewall. It is connected one end to some sort of vacuum block which is located at the left lower corner of the ECM, and goes up and some what to the other vacuum lines and such that run along the top of the firewall. Where the heck does this rubber hose go????

I have several photos. I can not figure out to FREAKIN POST them. And no it is not the brake booster line, that one plugs in at the rear of the intake manifold plenum.

So in the photo the hose in in the center. If you follow it down blowup the picture, it is connected to a square block looking thing with two smaller black lines connected to it. It's the other end of the rubber hose I don't know where it goes.

In this photo the end of the hose was actually fed back behind the silver heat shield right at the end of it between the orange/brown and black smaller vacuum lines, and wire loom.

Nope, the PVC line runs from the valve cover to the back of the intake manifold plenum, next to the brake booster hose. I wish somebody with a turbo cruiser would pop their hood and take a look. I tried to explain the start location of this hose, left side, right lower corner of ECM (as if you are sitting in the drivers seat) it naturally is form some what straight up then curves towards the end of the heat shield wrap at the top of the firewall. The end of the hose looks formed naturally as if it went on to something. I looked inside the hose end and their was a piece of plastic inside which I fished out, it appeared to be a piece of broken nipple. The hose also looks or could reach to where the brake booster line plugs into the intake. But it cannot as the brake booster hose does.

There is a nipple on the lower part of your turbo intake hose from the air box. The hose could be the one that connects there and then back to the block at the top, that's near the brake booster. I'll see if I can get a couple of pics of mine.
This is where it connects on top. The lower part should be on the turbo intake hose. It's hard plastic and over time, the heat from the engine and turbo will make it brittle and it will break off if tugged on. Remove the turbo intake hose and see if it looks like that's where it goes. If not, then I can't tell you.

Thanks Chuzz, I think you might be on to something. I don't recall anything plugging into it. I will check it out.
