on my hunt to find where my misfires are coming from i found that the nipple for a vacuum line coming off the intake tube is ripped its right before the turbo anyone around philadelphia have an extra intake hose they want to sell

I do but Im across country. Did you try plugging the hose? Misfires could be your MAF, coils, ICM....etc.

New maf , changed plugs , have coils coming the misfires are on all cyls it might still be the icm but I thought that would make one cyl do it. I get the misfires mostly under load on the highway so maybe pulling unmetered air is the cause?

It will make your MAF read wrong because air is entering the car after the sensor. Get a new boot.

Bought a new upgraded silicone intake tube hopefully it fixes it
