That is a sampling tube for a smog sniffer. It goes
to the downpipe just downstream from the turbo. You
most likely have a fuel/air issue. Or more than one.
There are some tests you can do with fairly
inexpensive tools. A decent DVOM can be had for $15
or less. Same for an analog dwell meter. I also
bought a fuel pressure gauge set from JC Whitless
(yes, them) for like $40 something. SJM has a great
troubleshooting site. I printed his entire site and
put it in a binder. It's that good. If you follow
his steps, I'm pretty sure you'll find your problem,
and also learn alot about your car.
