Hi! I'm in the middle of an NA 1.6 to VVT engine swap. Being an EUDM engine my square-top intake manifold is a bit different than the previous ones mentioned. i.e., I'm lacking vacuum barbs and am in the desperate need for advice on where to route the FPR line and MAP line

i have T-connectors, so i can tap into any existent line. i don't have any barb on the back end of the manifold. Only what is pictured

- orange: that fitting is currently plugged (spare barb for automatic transmission?). However I don't deem that an ideal location as it's right behind the throttle body
- green: that line used to run to the carbon canister I think. It will not be used (carbon canister delete)
- pink: no clue what that short line is for. Internal idle valve?
- yellow: same as pink

so where should i tap? shall i put a T-fitting between pink and yellow, and run that line to the FPR - and put in another T-fitting for the MAP sensor line?

On my VVT swap with a flat top I am running the vacuum line from the orange port. Seemed to work fine for the few minutes I had my car running.
