It is a PITA to fit the rubber hose onto the plastic vacuum lines I wasnt able to feed my rubber hoses as far onto the lines as the original ones were but I got them on good enough to work. I replaced the "F" connector line that runs to the fuel filter, I believe some lines that run to the ccv, I could be mistaken, and the rubber hose on the line that connects to the secondary air pump.
Use spit next time. Works really well and dries without any residue (providing you're not on a steady diet of Mobil 1)
