Like thunderdome said, it's the positive crankcase ventilation valve. So any pressure buildup in the crankcase is relieved through the valve. Because of emissions laws, you can just vent the air to the atmosphere since it's contaminated with oil vapor. So the hose runs back to the intake manifold where the oil vapor is run through the motor to burn off. This is where people put a catch can so the oil doesn't make it to the manifold and eventually cause buildup.

unfortunatly my work internet sucks and wont let me upload pics onto photobucket but i'll try and get one up when i get home later ... but its very simple ... on the left side of the intake manifold there is a vaccum port, right below that on the block is the pcv valve port ... the pcv hose is very short running from the pcv port to the vaccum port on the intake manifold

Why don't you run a hose from the PCV to the nipple on the blower manifold?
