vacuum leak

My car has a vacuum leak just behind the throttlebody and firewall. There are 3 hoses back there. Can anyone tell me what part # these are. I know one is kind of C shaped and regular hose will crimp and cut off airflow. Please help asap. Car is running real bad.

Actually there are more than three possible sources of leaks back there. Using the pic below as a reference:

The very bottom one pointing to the left with the red tip is the take off for the brake booster; the one just above that pointing straight out is the PCV hose fitting; the three above that grouped together are vacuum takeoffs for the 1) the EGR valve actuator 2) the fuel pressure sensor and 3) the EVAP purge valve actuator; the larger diameter one uppermost is for the EVAP purge inlet.

Which one is leaking?
