It's a tight space and it's the only part I'm having trouble with and obviously about to burn the car down...and I love my car...a lot. Once I get that in; everything else is cake.

Update: Replaced the elbow boot that connects to the throttle body (it was cracked) but now it's idling rough and is making a loud tick, tick, tick sound. Misfire? What can cause this? Loose MAF?
Did my CCV over hual recently and I have the same problem. Because you removed your DISA and the IDE control. You need to replace with all your 'Rubber grommet' you can not reuse them.
