GT/XR8 intake pipe?

At the motorshow I noticed on the intake pipe between the airfilter and trottlebody there is a sausage like tube coming out towards radiator about 4/5" long( dosnt go anywhere), but it was only on the GT not the XR8. My current AU XR8 also has bigger one but much closer to the throttle than the GT.
Does anyone know what it does and why is it on the GT and not the XR8?

Regards

Wade rocks

PS. please no guessing

Re: GT/XR8 intake pipe?

On Charliewools Pursuit he thought it was a rubber device that got erect when it saw another sexy GT....but maybe his was an isolated case lol

I believe it has something to do with passing emissions in reducing induction noise, from memory it was only manual utes but not sure for MkII. The mustangs have a similar thing fitted to the air hose between the airbox and t/b

The one fitted to Tickford modified XR's was a resonator.
