Default 03 Gt turbo manual vacuum line question

Hello! I'm back. New question: The photo shows a question I have:
From the bottom of the photo, right next to the lowest triangle brace on the air filter box, is an unplugged vacuum line that goes into the unfiltered bottom of the filter intake box. Is this supposed to be connected to the valve cover vacuum line attachment point? (though it cant be seen, it IS pretty much straight across from it). Next question: Midway up and in the middle is a white, 3 way vacuum line connector. Is that "factory"? If so, why is the smaller line that is on the right side of it and heading downward at a 45% degree angle, plugged?? If not, where should the plugged line go? Finally, my finger is pointing to a factory connector, at which point I am hoping that everything is factory behind it..

I would suggest if you can open the hood on your PT Cruiser, to look and see if on the top of the front grill support bracket, there should be a white sheet glued to the bracket. On the right side is a vacuum line diagram that I think has all the information you need.

The valve cover to airbox line (Not the one with PCV valve) is called "makeup air" line and does not impact engine vacuum, as the airbox end is open.

Pt cruiser steve, thanks. But that was the second photo that I posted.

Quicksilver don, thanks. But then Why would it be there, or be neccesary? (Not that Im doubting you, but that seems crazy that the factory would do that, for no reason or putpose) More thoughts, comments, etc?
