    There's two hoses. The smaller one that comes off the nipple on the vavle? Or the bigger one? Also at what end is it dangling? On the vavle side or to where it should connect?
    The smaller line runs from the nipple on the valve to the backside of the engine. There's another nipple under the intake manifold in the center where the pcv valve is. You'll have to take the intercooler off and you should see it
    The bigger one goes into the turbo inlet. If that's off, you're going to have to get creative to get it back on. it connects to the turbo inlet directly under the intake manifold

    Pics would help as well for things like this for future reference.

    Might as well check the gasket and see if there's any blow by around the valve and intercooler
    You'll also want to replace the throttle body to intercooler hose with a silicone one as the stock ones fail
