Alrite, I have one of those keystone restyling flipper hoods with the flipper door that is vacuum actuated. I got 2001 Silverado 5.3L and am having a hard time finding a vacuum line that will work. I found two lines on the manifold, one looks like the idler on the driver side and the other looks like a breather going from the MAF to the valve cover. Are there any other better choices or are those the only ones I have to choose from and which one should I splice into. Thanks.

Sorry about the quality, from a cell phone.

Booster line at the back of the intake. T off of it and run to the hood.

I was told to stay away from the brake vacuum lines though.
