Last time I had the blower off I had broke the vac tree off the
top that is near the firewall...so for temporary fix I pushed
a bolt down in there to quick fix it...My vacuum sucked after
swapping to late model blower n MP Plenum.

Has anyone used an aftermarket vacuum or some kind of block
that has four or more fittings coming out?

Maybe i can tie them all together LoL!!!!

Best bet is to get one from one of the cars being parted out in the parts section. The guys on here are cool and would probably get one out to you quickly.

I have my tree around somewhere, I replaced it with a billet aluminum vacuum block from Ebay when I installed the AR to make room for the inlet.

Get one from a junkyard n/a bird and block off the 1 extra branch, that's what I did.

Let me know if ya find it in the next day or so...
Or I can check the local junkyards like Keith said.

Thanks for the help!

Is this possibly why my bypass valve wasn't opening
due to very low vac?

A few vacuum tees will accomplish the same thing as the stock tree.
