If it's the vacuum connectors pictured,they are for the coolant lines.
Most people block them off.
They run over to the metal line for the heater hoses on the passenger side.

You can cap it off or just leave it as is.
It won't effect anything.

The map vacuum line hooks in behind the turbo.
There is a port on the intake with a tee.

Should find some info there.
Manuals are sometimes for sale on the boards.
