Your question is a bit vague. The ram air vacuum hose connects to a T connector on the vacuum hose leading to the air cleaner bi-metal valve on the underside of the air cleaner base. The other end runs up to the back of the hood and is routed to a T connector at the passenger side ram air flap actuator.

When you hook it all up, you can play with various options.

In the diagram above, #14 is the Vacuum Tree on the back of the intake manifold.  In stock configuration, this tree provides vacuum to the brake booster, A/C, Auto Trans modulator (by way of the plastic vacuum manifold on the firewall), Bi-metal valve & Air Cleaner Snorkel & ram air, EGR and PVS valve.
