I'm trying to make it as bare bone (stand alone) as it can be. I need to know what vaccum lines I do and don't need. I've already removed the smog pump and I'm trying to remember from 11 years ago what else I can remove. Any and all help would be appreciated

Technically all you "need" is the brake booster...

Well you can't just rip lines out. If they go to something they are necessary, there's no random lines going to nothing lol. But you can delete some of the things they go to. The egr and pcv system for example, but there's no benefit to doing so.

I'm well aware... But as I was examining today their were majorly important ports on the carb and intake that were blocked off or just left open that I vaguely remember having some significant point to the operation and function of how it ran
