    The position in which the hose is supposed to sit, I pulled my tmic off last night and I cant remember how the hose is supposed to be seated, and the way I have it bolted in now wont match with the support bracket running along the right side.

    I took mine off to tighten the hose I had a slight leak and read that others have had the same problem. It was a pain to put back on. Look for the flat spot on the hose, I believe i had that closer to the drivers side. I put the throttle body part on first and adjusted the worm clamp, and I sprayed some silicon in the lip of the hose. After that I was able to slide the intercooler back on. It took a little work and was little awkward but went back on properly.

    Nope the 08-up WRX throttle body is off to the right facing more the drivers side.

    One pic I could find

    Your perspective if you are looking at if from the back you can see the flat spot where the oil is collecting and then the throttle body.
