Question type: Car Customization

I bought a cold air intake for my Toyota Matrix 2006 base and when examining the instructions it make no mentions of an air tube that connect the motor to the stock air hose before the throttle body.  What is it?

Looks like a coolant tube. Does it connect to the rubber hose that goes behind the air intake tube? If so, it's a coolant tube. HTH. -Jim

The only things that should have to be removed from stock air box and re connected to the cold air intake tube are the mass air flow sensor which is the sensor held on by two small screws on top of air box and a small hose that is connected to the bottom of the stock air box under the main intake tube behind the air box if your standing in front of car looking at engine. The hose your arrows are pointing at should not be hooked up to the air intake tube at all. Is it connected to something on both ends or is it just hanging there from the engine not connected to anything on the other end? I can't tell in the picture
