It is from a 97 GP I'm pretty sure, it has the connection for the brake booster, then 2 others, 1 is used for the boost bypass valve and the other was for a vacuum line that went to the climate control, I think I can just block off the other connector beacuse there is a seperate tree with 2 connectors that you just run a piece of line to each

also what bin should I use from a stock SC car? I know I have to pull out some timing per the ZZP instructions, and put my tranny settings into the new bin, anything else?

Full tune. Anything less and you'll be committing motor suicide.

Different pcm etc and not being the exact same engine... you are taking a risk IMO.

Well I will use a SSEi bin then make the changes that ZZP calls for, like taking 8 degrees of timing out throught the tables, and AE fuel ratio, and PE I think, its all in the directions, then put my MAF and trans tables in from my bin since I will use the same TB and trans
