1988 Camaro 305 restore question

I'm helping a friend with a 1988 camaro vin e 305 tbi restore. We are down to a few spots not knowing what connects to them. If anyone could help us identify these it would be really appreciated. I don't know why putting just the link and not the picture. I am new at this so if anyone can help I appreciate it.

Two black lines by back firewall




Two black lines by heater pipe on firewall



Sits on engine is by black tape. Need to know where the vacuum goes to



Finger points to question, how do I connect the two.



Finger points to question, sits along passenger side where to connect.



Finger points to question, where to connect from smog pump.



Finger points to question, where does this connect to.

I can take some pics for you tomorrow after work, i got a 89 Formula completely stock with all the smog crap still on it, those black lines are cut in pic 1 and 2, they should have what looks like a rubber boot on them, in the second pic, 1 goes to the front of the throttle body air tube (passenger side) should have a 90 degree boot on it, the other plugs onto the last pic you posted (straight boot), as far as the first pic, 1 of them lines go to the little black box looking thing bolted to a bracket coming off the firewall directly over the a/c stuff feel behind it, there is a place to pop it on, again 1 is a 90 degree boot, I did'nt see the other one, to dark right now. i'll have to look at pic 3,4,5and 6 tomorrow when its daylight. I'll get you some pics also. Where is pic 3 located at?

In your last pic there should be a line going from there to a little nipple on the bottom of the air intake.

You sure it's not a coolant control valve for the heater?
If so it should have a vacuum line going to the HVAC control on the dash.

Is the heater control the thing inside the car that you turn on to get ac or heat. If so they are the longer lines in the middle of the car in the picture 1. The other two shorter lines go in thru the firewall but we cannot figure out where they go from there. Need to know where on the engine to connect all four. If you haven't figured I am a woman trying to help a friend.

Hopefully you can get some answers. My 90 rs 305 tbi also has some mystery wires and lines unplugged. In your last picture, mine is plugged off...
