That would be your MAP sensor ;) Definitely gonna need that. And there should be two vac lines. One by the throttle body bellows tube, and another near the MAP sensor underneath. Both are critical.

Pics of the progress so far?

You could run a vacuum line and mount the MAP sensor separately, but IDK if that would have a delay effect compared to being directly in the plenum. Older vehicles had the MAP mounted on the firewall, but those were older PCM designs too. You can do one vacuum port and tee off of that. Or do as many as you have room for. It doesn't matter where they are, as long as you can plumb the vacuum tubing to where you need it.

This is the first version of my GB IM. I just glued the MAP bung to the tube. It is still there. The vacuum port by the inlet is not. I am running all the vacuum stuff from one port on the backside to a tee. It has no issues for vacuum needs. I used the 90º elbow that came with the 1gn IM to attach the tubing to.
