Throttle Body to Intercooler hose. Common issue that fails on the 08+ cars but usually at higher than stock boost levels. Basically the hose design is crap and it fails. I suspect a small amount of oil gets in the hose overtime and starts to break down the glue that holds the "endcaps" onto the hoses. Then the glue fails, creates a boost leak, etc etc etc....
