      Guys I have a GT40 Upper exlorer intake that I am going to be using on my 302 F-150 truck and need to know what goes where as far as vacuum connections goes? Here is the casting number on the upper RF-XL2E-9425-AB. I think my upper came off of a 96 Explorer because the vacuum ports don't look like any of these in this picture below...

      Here is what my upper intake looks like below:

      They all have the same pressure signal, so you can use them as you please.

      Guys could someone post a vacuum hose routing diagram for me so that I can complete my conversion on my 92 F-150 pickup? Are any of the vacuum ports dead from the factory or are they all useable?
