Early 99 Intake Question

I have finally gotten around to getting an intercooler put on my truck and have a question about the intake spyder. There are four holes on the spyder that need sealed. The two threaded holes are easy and finished. Where I am stuck is with the two ports that look like they were for boost pressure since they are not threaded and simple had a barb fitting in them. Those of you that have used this intake on your truck what did you seal these holes with?

The help is greatly appreciated!

The barb fittings are for a map sensor tube, and the other is a vacume line. You could do away with the vacume line, but keep the map port and install a barb fitting and run it to you boost guage or whatever....

^^^If he still has the stock fuel canister it will have to be removed. Both hose barbs will pull out with a pair of pliers. I just drove in tapered steel pins with loctite on them but you can just tap them for a pipe plug or set screw, just needs to go in flush with the outside of the housing since it is so close to the fuel canister.

I just had all the holes on mine welded up.

The fuel bowl on the SD is on top of the hpop and the OBS sits behind the hpop
