    It's aftermarket, and what I believe happened is someone removed the hoses while doing maintenance and didn't have the know-how to put them back correctly. 2 lines were melted. Trying to figure out the mess under the hood is a nightmare between the turbo and intercooler.

Was this a dealer option, or added later? if dealer option, you should be able to obtain the info from your dealer. if added later, the vacuum line connections should have been included in the after market suppliers installation instructions! did you buy it used? with the turbo installed, but not hooked up? did the lines just sort of 'come loose'?if the vacuum lines came loose, they are probably different lengths- should be able to figure which goes where. then replace with new lines- the rubber is probably 'tired'.
gets hot under there! if it's OEM (original equipment manufacturer)- 'optional' from the dealership, then they should have the info- or be willing to replace the lines- for a reasonable price! some knowledge and a few feet of vacuum hose shouldn't cost an arm & a leg! since you didn't state whether 'option' or 'after market', it's hard to give solid advice!
good luck!

Random vacuum whine from the engine compartment

Most likely it is a vacuum leak or if you or you have had some one working on it has crossed a vacuum line, also back on the intake and exhaust manifold and around the turbo you will have a couple of vacuum controllers and if they have cracked or broken then that as well will cause the noise. There should be a Vacuum diagram in the engine compartment use it to follow the lines, this will allow you to track down the leak, inspect all of the lines they are bad to crack . Also you should check the belt pulleys and belts to make sure that one isn't going bad. it will help to have someone to assist for tracing down the vacuum lines are or can be tedious and they can rev the engine while you search.
