Your 1st step should be to pick up the factory service manuals including the EVTM before proceeding any further. I think in your messages in the other post, your were changing fuel & electrical components without any real direction. At minimum verify that there is no stored codes in the ecm, that there is fuel pressure & the secondary ignition is in adequate shape. Good luck

two conections from the throttle body

You mean the two nipples on the front/bottom of the throttle body? Those go to the cooling system, not vacuum.

the by pass
Small thin plastic line, over to the vacuum line group behind the driver side wheelwell hump, near the gas lift pivot point. The line should have a molded rubber connector on each end, I think, right-angle at the bypass can.

and the second pcv valve that is on the drivers side.
There isn't a second one, just a hose from the fitting in the valve cover, that runs over to the pass. side, under the nose/snout of the supercharger, then to the nipple on the rubber intake tube between the throttle body and air cleaner box...look for a molded black plastic line with short rubber hose connectors on each end.

first image

That isn't for vacuum. One side is coolant in and the other side is coolant out. It is supposed to help heat the intake in cold climates. The one you're pointing to is coolant 'OUT'. The 'coolant in' shown in the image is connected to the metal pipe under the wiring harness. Some owners just put a short pipe between the two hoses and bypass the TB.

As for the second image, that brake booster isn't stock...not sure I can help you sort that all out, sorry.

If you have the bypass connected correctly, it will be pulled open when the engine is started/at idle. Have someone start the engine while you watch the rod at the vacuum pot.

Stick with it, you'll get there.

It's pretty tight back there so photos I have don't help much. I looked, but I don't have any that show the details - maybe someone else has something they can share that makes those connections more obvious.
