    Definitely from your throttle body hose just happened to me
    Pull it off and I bet it will look something similar to that get it fixed ASAP! A boost leak will kill your mpg!

    I'm not a fan of my local dealership so I just replaced it with the mishimoto hose because the stock hose is known for problems but I'm sure they would replace it for you unless they claim your modifications caused it

    Its an easy fix. Ive done it to mine a few times now. take off BOV and remove the recirculation hose (make sure not to loose the gasket). Take off the bolt to the metal support bracket. take off the bolts to the turbo and it should slide right off. You may want to have some silicone lubricant to spray on the rubber parts to make it slide easier. Also may want a long set of screwdrivers and a flash light. When bolting the IC to the turbo be careful not to cross thread and to not over tighten. If you dont mix up the bolts you can tighten till the paint marks line up.

    If anything the aftermarket hose is better for your car
