04 SVT vapor management valve location

i'm having trouble locating the vapor management valve on my 04 SVT. another user in a different post, not sure if it was SVT related or not, said it was located behind the power steering reservoir, but i'm not seeing anything that looks like a valve. if anyone has a picture or could give me a better idea where it is would help a lot. or maybe its in a different spot on the SVT?

thanks!

i think i may have found it. if someone can confirm it for me would be great!

could it also be called a "vapor canister purge valve"? that's what i found on rockauto.com

NEED HELP! ok i replaced this valve about 1 week ago. since then i've gone through 1 full tank of gas and gotten 170-180 miles to 3/4 of a tank. before i replaced this, i could get ~250, maybe a bit less, non highway miles to a full tank. i live about 7-8 miles from where i work and i can see a noticeable difference in how much the gas gauge drops just from driving home from work, 1 way.

does anybody know why this might be or what i should do?
