Gotcha now Maybe I'll give it a try. I've already take out the intake resonator and replaced it. The lost torque was not worth it.

Its located in the same place. The restrictor is white in color.

I see, I was looking at the wrong side of the intercooler. Another reason why I couldn't find it is that's where I tapped my boost gauge into so the restrictor has been off for some time now.
