Default Holes in rigid black tubing on stock intercooler of 06 STI

Found two small holes in the rigid black tubing assembly that bolts to the top front of the intercooler of my 06 STI. Two questions. What kind of performance problem would that cause, and what is a suitable way to repair the tube?

Thats the crank case vent tubing. I cant remember the vac line routing off the top of my head but I believe that is an after maf, pre-turbo air leak, not to mention it'll get oil mist all over the top of your engine.

not good..thats unmetered air being sucked into turbo since the holes are past the maf sensor. I would replace them.
