2001 Camry VSV Valve differences

I'm trying to replace the VSV valve that is near the gas tank on my daughters 2001 Camry 4 cylinder manual. The part I got from NAPA doesn't match up to the original. It has one extra port....a steel tube running out one end. It also has two ports in the same direction vs opposite direction on the original. See picture.

We called Toyota dealer and they said the replacement was a three port design(like I purchased) also. I'm confused. How am I supposed to hook two hoses into a three port valve? Note the part number from NAPA is 2-28207...Toyota number is 90910-12271 that is stamped on the new NAPA part I bought. Is this the wrong part or was there a change that supercedes the old part. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Okay, what they gave you is the 3-way VSV from the 1999 Camry.

The 2000+ charcoal canister VSV is a bypass VSV/pressure switching VSV. I'll get you the correct part number.

90910-12264 - valve, vacuum switching (for charcoal canister)

This is the valve with the 2 larger ports.

It's impossible to find in the 1997-2001 Camry parts catalog, so tell them to search 2002.
