The throttle body rubber hose connector was loose! just like you said stanrc!
I have a couple concluding questions at the end though

For those with a similar noise here are some pics for reference
When I took off the intercooler the rubber connector was stuck on the intercooler and I can also see the side of the throttle body hose coming off

I could tell from the white gooey looking thing on the TB hose

intercooler removal was easy - take off bracket bolts with 12mm and bpv with 11 or 10 mm i forgot. There werent any gaskets on the turbo->IC or IC->BPV so nothing to worry about there. Then you just yank it toward passenger side and it should come right out.

The End
I saw some oil where the BPV opening to the IC opening and also inside the TB hose

should i be concerned or is that normal just to grease stuff up?
