Electical and vacuum help please.

I bought a 2004 wrx with a fmic, I think an external wastegate, bov, and exhaust. I'm not sure of the whole story on the engine but I think the previous owner swapped some stuff but didn't get everything hooked back up before I bought it. I have a few questions on some electrical plugs and vacuum lines but I can't get any pictures to upload. Can somebody pm me an e-mail address and maybe upload and post the pictures for me?

I couldn't get the last one to upload but, those electrical connections look kinda like coil connectors or injector connectors.

The injectors are all plugged in. The third picture was a coil connector. Thanks.

What is this wire. It is spliced into a wire loom on the passenger side frame rail.

How does it need to be hooked up? I can't find any pictures or diagrams.

1st picture...shew! what a mess. Who knows! 2nd picture...Maybe tgv's or there are some connectors on top of the valve cover in that area but, it sure looks like coils or injector plugs. 3rd picture...We figured that one out right? 4th picture looks like pcv or something that goes into your turbo inlet. 5th picture (the one you linked to)...maybe goes to one of those plugs on the passenger side strut tower. Do you have a aftermarket bcs or turbo inlet? if you do I can probably link you to some install instructions that will help you out. Also need to know for sure if you do have ewg. If you do it makes some of the vaccum routing different and I can probably help more if I knew.

I'm new to turbo motors and I'm not sure on some of the terms like "tgv" and some of the parts that go along with it but I'm trying to learn. It does have a ewg though and it has a manual boost controller.
