I just bought a new intake and rebuilt carb to replace the old 2bbl that came with my 1972 GTO. The motor is a 1971 400 and was rated for 265 hp. The old carb was gunked up and needed rebuilding so I opted to go ahead and get a 4bbl and new intake. The question I have is around the vacuum connections. On the old 2bbl intake there are no vacuum connections into the intake - on the new one there are two. Can someone tell me which of these two are for the connection to the PCV valve and what the other one is for?

Most often I've seen the PCV valve connected to the one on the "left" in your photo - the one closest to the passenger side. The other one, you can use for "whatever" --- transmission vacuum modulator, for example, or power brakes. If you don't need it, just cap it with a good quality rubber (not vinyl) cap.

As 05's photo shows, BOTH outlets are for PCV. There is a Tee that is needed to connect the hoses, and also, one of the hoses is "formed". All available at the vendors.
