I believe that is a vent to your flame arrestor.

Do you plumb the PCV to anything? It seems like it was just left open by merc.

PVC valve and hose connects to fitting on front underside of upper intake

Other side connects to flame arrestor

Thanks Dave.

I don't have the factory flame arrestor. Can I tee it into the hose for the other?

I have an older style mpi manifold that tee'd both vents together then into the manifold but the tee was a funky plastic piece that was merc only I'm sure.
