Default Vacuum leak?

When my truck is sitting idle for about 5-10min I can start to hear what sounds like a vacuum leak. Then it will start to idle rough then if I don't feather the throttle about a minute or 2 later it will stall out. I can not see any holes in any of the vacuum lines or anything and It almost sounds as if it is coming from where the air box attaches to the throttle body. I tried tightening down the clamp to no avail.

Anyone ever had a problem like this or have any idea what could be going on?

No check engine light or anything just stalls out. But if i tap the throttle when it starts to idle rough it will go away and start the process all over again.
