yes I do. you'll need to get replacement lines first they come in certain lengths and colors as well. the hardest is the rear turbo side. everything else is moderatley easy. some lines are hard to take off because over time they get brittle so you'll need to use an xacto knife

I just did them all today with http://www.verociousmotorsports.com/...cuum-Hose-Kits
the front turbo was the hardest in my eyes the rear turbo took like 2 mins. I have big hands so if I could do it anyone can.

This is really easy to do.
1.) Buy 3.5mm silicone tubing on amazon
2.) Carefully remove each hose one at a time. A screwdriver and xacto knife may help.
3.) Cut the same length of new tubing and replace.

Thats the hardest one, it goes to the front turbo, I have big hands and was able to get my left arm down in following the line and held the line on the tip on the waistgate nipple, but didn't have enough leverage to push it on. So with my right arm i got a really skinny flat head and went through the front part of the engine and kinda pushed it on with the flat head while still holding it on. I struggled and got frustrated multiple times but just relax and it will go. Spit on the end on the line so it slips on easier haha

Managed to get a hold of that front turbo vac line so all is good again.

I used the same source for my lines. Those extended reach tools that are clawlike that allow you to grab stuff helped me get to vac line from front turbo.
