Intake manifold replace - hose help

I am putting my cosi manifold on today. So far, it has been a bitch, to say the least. You might as well forget about the instructions. ANYONE can put a manifold on when the engine is out of the car and no sensors are hooked up (thats how the cosi instructions are).

Ok, onto my help. I have all bolts removed, egr removed, dipstick removed, the intake can almost be pulled out. HOWEVER, there is a hose/valve just behind the throttle body. The hose goes back into the firewall. The valve? looks like a plastic elbow. How in the HELL do I get this thing off the intake manifold? There is no clip holding it in. I have tried prying it off, twisting it off, and I pulled...and pulled ...and pulled some more. That thing wont budge. This is the last, small piece i need to remove to get my intake out.

So what is this thing and how to ai get it out/off?
