This almost certainly the problem.

Try disconnecting the MAF sensor and restart the car. The car should run/idle OK (with ESP light on and no boost) if it is a hose.

It is normally the one from the under engine hard pipe to the intercooler on the near side

I have had this samething happen to me twice since I modified the car, since I upgraded the hose clips I have never had any problems.
