Could someone explain what this tube is for???
 
Below is a pic of my engine with a tube that comes out of it. What does it do? I know on the back of my valve cover is the PCV valve. But this other tube come out of the side of my cover and leads into my air box. If I get a CAI what do I do with this line? Will there be a hook up for it? Thanks for your time and help.

It's a vacuum hose/tube ... still part of the PCV system ... usually CAI tubes have nipples for those hoses to be connected to.

Is there a place that sells aftermarket or different colored tubes by any chance that anyone knows of? I am planning on getting a CAI for a Zetec cause I have a 60mm throttle body on my SPI. Do those CAI have a place where it can be connected to as well?

Thanks AWD_Gabe!

You're welcome. You're probably not gonna find a different-color tube, but you could use some colored split-loom ...

Just get some aluminum tube in the same diameter and paint it. Should be able to find some at any hardware store. Just make sure you scuff the tube with scotch bright and use a chemical resistant paint.

This isn't the best picture but you get the idea. Just get a piece of heater hose, slap it on the nipple, then install ricer breather filter on the end.

Hey guys, I know this is an old post, but I kind of have the same question. While I was looking around to check things on my focus, I noticed that the same tube/hose is broken right where it connects to the air box. It has a L connection there.
I went to an advance auto to recycle the engine oil today and asked the dude if they carry the part and he couldn't find anything but suggested I call the Ford stealership. Just wondering if any of you have any ideas on this. I would call Ford but am not sure about the name of the part.

Thanks guys. As always FF members rock.

Try this. Use the old U pipe if you have nothing else.
