Identify These Parts On My Chevy

I'm new to Hotrodding, and I'm working on my first build, please identify the parts that is circled in Yellow and Red. I think the Red has to do with the AC, the Yellow has to do with ?, not quite sure. This is not my truck or build by the way, just using it as an example.

yellow would be your brake booster and master cylinder (don't take apart!) just add brake fluid to the master cylinder when needed. (That's what makes you stop before you run over the neighbor's dog. Hate to get a rib through a good tire! )

correct on the purple, it's got to do with your AC and heat.

Yellow is the brake booster, Just make sure its connected to manifold vacuum, and you leave all the brake lines connected.

Red is the AC plenum, filter/drier (the round vertical canister), and the evaporator (its inside the plenum). It does not hurt to leave them in place even if the AC lines and compressor are not connected. However, you should plug the lines so that you don't get dirt and moisture inside (I think I see a plug on the filter/drier in the picture). That will make it easier to get the AC working later on if you decide you want it.

The blower motor is also mounted in the plenum over by the passenger fender. Its much easier to replace than it is on most cars.

Not to be too picky but this is a GM system and doesn't have a "Drier", that canister is an "Acumulator".

Should there be a "very" before "new"? Lol. Just messing with you.
