Default Questions about installing Howell tbi on sbc

I received my tbi kit from Howell today and I have a few questions I'm hoping somebody can help me with. The kit has the 670 Holley tbi unit.

I'm a little lost with the vacuum lines and where they are supposed to go.

The instructions say to run the map sensor to one of the front/ side ports. The rest of them say to plumb according to what motor you have. Needless to say I'm not the sharpest guy around when it comes to this stuff so I could use some advice. Thanks!

The first pic is the pcv valve it could go on the large port on front or back. #2 is the advance for the distributor it should be hooked to ported vacuum meaning it only has vacuum when the throttle is open it will probly be the higher port above the throttle plate. #3 and 4 can be hooked the the smaller lower ports that have vacuum all the time.

Chad if you need ported vacuum there is a bank behind the intake that was plumbed in, you can tie into it there.
