Default vacume line locations

there is a vacum line on the top of my intake mani, right where the TB and mani contact. its the one on the left (looking from the front of the car to the back). it goes to a T, then a line runs somewhere (i dont care). its the other end of the T that i need to know where it goes.
there is also a line that runs from just before the TB.
where do these lines go?
also where does the line that goes to the valve cover vent on the driver side of the motor?
both of these lines run to where the turbo used to be. i unhooked them a while ago and forgot where they go (bonehead, i know).
id posts pics but i cant figure out how.

where do these lines go?
The factory didn't use any Tee connectors so far as I know, so a picture is going to be necessary. Along with the year of the car, and whether or not it has cruise control.

From the factory, it goes to a large-diameter line that crosses around the front of the valve cover and into the intake pipe. In a turbo install you can run it either into the pipe between the air filter and the compressor (it must be *before* the compressor) or you can just put a crankcase vent filter there.

You need to upload your pictures to an internet based image hosting service, such as http://www.imageshack.us/ or http://allyoucanupload.webshots.com/. Then you will use the button to embed the picture into the message.
