1. IC->TB coupling issue, is it that piece of thin rubber attached to the coupling?
Kind of. It's more like a "U" that wraps around both the inside and outside. The inside flap will fold over.

This guy:

2. There's a hose directly under the IC connected to the intake manifold that needs to be secured am I correct?
Yup. Not entirely sure what it is but I'm quite certain it isn't supposed to be hanging loose.

Did you have to remove the TMIC to fix these issues and are there any other hoses that we should secure as well? Thx!!
Yup. It was my first time pulling anything off aside from the TBE install. I grabbed some experienced help to be safe but it was pretty simple. The trickiest part was getting the coupler lined up at the right angle and the ring clamp on straight all the way around when reinstalling the IC. There isn't a lot of room to work with so you have to be assertive...
