Vacuum line missing

Hey guys... I've been chasing some vacuum leaks and stalling due to them. I replaced the two valve cover breather elbows, but noticed in the back this large vacuum port under the plastic plenum near the throttle body. Something must have fallen off recently because this lean condition just started. I cannot find anything that seems to be laying around. Can someone tell me what this port connects to, and also these red lines. (I think are for the fuel pressure regulator, but are loose on this side.

Thanks. I've tried to find a diagram but cannot.

This is a 2003 SES with a Duratec

Iirc, there should be a black rubber vacuum elbow attached to that port that has 2 small holes on the bottom which the small red hard lines insert into. 1 red line supplies vacuum to the fpr or sensor on the fuel rail and the other red line supplies vacuum to the evr. May make a trip to a local pick-n-pull jy to get a visual and source needed parts.

The two red hard plastic lines in your picture plug in that black elbow. Does not matter which one goes in which hole. This may be the easiest fix here. Congrats.

Any thought on what it's called? I suspect the original fell off and out of the car. I can't seem to find this part, I keep getting results of the PCV elbows.

I'd try to find a couple good, clean and snug ones from a local pick-n-pull jy for cheap. Did you look with a light and feel down below that port for the mia elbow?

Yeah, I've looked pretty thoroughly... I'm guessing it fell out of the bottom. Sadly I don't have a lot of junkyards near me, so I'm guessing I'll have to hit up the local dealer. Can anyone confirm this is the doohickey I am looking for?

I bet you could get a couple dpfe hoses and a plastic "t" and connect it that way, if the diameters are the right size.

I suppose this is only practical if you have the hoses and fittings lying around but here it is
