Vacuum Port Diagram on a 98 5.0

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.

Vacuum Port Diagram on a 98 5.0

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?

Are you referring to the plastic lines, or the regular rubber hoses? Start with the vacuum tree (octopus connector).
