Default First Start!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The first start of my v8 swap, it's not complete, but I wanted to make sure it starts, also anyone know where the vacuum line from the fuel rail pressure sensor connects to.

Sounds great!

You still needing to resolve the FRPS vacuum? Get a 3/8-1/8-3/8 vacuum T, cut and insert it in the brake booster vacuum line. Or T it to the evap line. Or V6's have a solid line to the brake booster and we get frps vacuum from different vacuum ports on the v6 intake manifold.
Look at a stock GT setup, at the brake vacuum line.

Car is idling fine, but having some problems with higher rpm's, has something to do with the MAF and I figured out the frps vacuum line.
