Re: Question about ISV plumbing

If you mean the plastic elbow at the rear of the long straight ISV hose,
then it's the "air supply for air shrouded fuel injectors".  I remember
this because I broke mine when changing the hoses.  It's been unplugged for
a couple months now seemingly w/o ill effect...
