    what car is it on im guessing a 3, it does look like part of the breather system. did you fit the cone filter? if so was there a port for this pipe to connect into in the top section of the airbox as i would say something to do with recirculating the breather into the airbox to re-burn the fumes for a cleaner emission

    Thats the SAI (secondary air injection) and normally goes into the filtered side of the airbox... as you have a cone filter then you either need to cap it off with a small filter (check ebay, can't remember the size off hand but won't be expensive...) or do an SAI delete (info in the stickies)
