That it is for a heater hose connection. The FI manifold has both heater hoses coming off the front were as the carb version has one on the t-stat housing in the front and one on the rear of the manifold. I've attached a pic of a Buick intake on a 4.6 I built up showing the connection.

Do you have any pictures of the completed setup? Im installing this manifold with an FiTech Go-EFI 4 fuel injection system instead of a carb, and want to make sure all my hoses and fittings are routed and installed correctly.

You need to get a rimmer Bros catalogue, it's all in there.

Sorry to hijack this thread, but did you ever complete the fitech EFI set up? Have you, or do you plan to do a write-up or post info? I've been looking for information on the Fitech EFI system for my 3.5.

Thanks much!

Ill throw something together to show how I did it. And by the way, I dont regret it for a second. The truck now runs smoother than I could have imagined.
