I believe the white vacuum line goes through a grommet into the engine compartment and is attached to the heater control valve.

The black vacuum line should go to the flappy actuator in the cowling area that controls the air into the passenger footwell .

Thanks Stepson,
do you know what they attached to on the engine side of the firewall. I labeled pretty much everything when pulling the motor and neither of these had a label. I did remove them through the firewall bracket that had the AC lines.

Recieved Lizard coating, which is a spray on insulation and heat barrier. In addition I purchased a heat / sound insulation self adhesion layer. I am going to install a sepearte battery cut off switch and replace the engine bay hot lead terminal. Also purchased battery mount, new rotors and front and rear hood supports.

Removed front seats. There is a release handle to slide the seat forward or backwards in case of no power. Obviously, I have no power and of course the release did not work on drivers seat. There is a two wire connection that I taped into so I could move the seat.

I am a off-road guy and we typically run a stage 4 pressure plate with 6 puck single with Kennedy engineering.....500hp. I am purchasing the conversion kit from Renegade and running what they suggest for 500hp, since Kennedy doesn't really deal with street and the type of trans / setup I have. A 12" carbon fiber disc, not sure what the pressure plate will be, is what Renegade is sending.

Today was a tuff day and disappointing. I removed the rear side, deck lid and front glass. Everything was going well until the front windshield. I use the pull cord that is mounted in the glass, but broke and then add second pull line. I thought I had everything separated, but didn't and broke the glass, first oh **** moment so far.
Remove glass, and drivers pod, along with inner panels and lid.

I believe that both those vacuum lines are attached to the vacuum manifold in the cabin behind the console on top of the transmission tunnel.

The vacuum manifold is fed by a black vacuum line from the 6 way (where the blue one-way valve is connected) through the firewall and into the cabin to the vacuum manifold

Started replacing the old seals and o'rings in steering rack. I am using a build thread for the instructions, you would think the kit would come with details, but doesn't. I ran into a problem with one of the nylon piceces that goes into- of a o'ring. The new piece is thicker and will not work with the O'ring. I read that another person out of the U.K. had same problem, but no one replied to his question. If anyone knows what is suppose to happen, please chime in.

Made aluminum solid bushings for the steering rack instead of using the rubber ones. Bushing are the same length as stock. I will make either a derlon washer or dense rubber so I keep the same over all dimensions. I think others just flush the bushing off and bolt on.

Finally got the dash out. A lot more to it than I thought. Dash and pod have lots of cracks so will be looking to get refinished.

Started building up new Koni shocks and had to stop due to the bump stops / snubbers on the stock shocks are part of the switch over, mine were junk. I hit up 3 auto parts stores and nothing. It seems ridiculous that $20 a pair for stops are not included or mentioned that you might need when buying the upgrade.
You need to take a part your stock shocks. The top hats will be used on the new shocks along with bump stops

Broke down the upper front a arms. The kit comes with numerous tools to remove and install the new bushings. I actual used a socket to remove a couple of the pressed in studs instead of what they provided. The tools are handy, but I think a little creativity could get the bushing out as well.
