hey guys,,, im tring to figure out what exactly is the part behind the intake manifold.. it has a vacumm port on top, and 2 big rubber hoses coming out of opposite sides... it also seems to have a steel hose ran up to it. its centered exactly in the middle portion of the back side of the motor. right above the tranny. i have a 86 bronco 5.0 efi. it use to have an air pump. not anymore. u guys might remember the horrible gas milege im having.. less than 7. anyways the 2 black rubber hoses are connected to nothing. and there seems to be vaccumm comming from the hoses when the engine is running. any ideas what im looking at? cant seem to find it in the haynes manual. and would it affect my idle and mileage?

does it kinda look like handle bars?

i remember taking that off when i had to replace my head gaskets. i think its some kindof carbon thing (i dont remember what the guy told me it was)
ill call and ask. i know you should hit it with some compressed air and get the crap out...
