Thanks, But more questions? To the top of manifold or bottom where drain plug is? What is its purpose? Had many boats without this?

I was told it was to reduce stem pockets in the tails. There should two 3/8 nipples on the back side joined with rubber hose.

It connects to a fitting on the exhaust manifold with about a 4-6" piece of hose I don't think all the Gil manifolds had the other fitting though.
You can just cap/plug it if you don't have the matching fitting on your manifolds.
