Looks like part of the EGR system. V6? According to my '97 service
manual the part you have circled is the EGR valve to exhaust manifold
tube. The steel tube that nipple is attached to should run up around the
backside of the engine to the EGR valve near the throttle body.
While the manual's illustration shows two of those nipples on the tube,
it doesn't show what attaches to them. Probably in the emissions manual
that I don't have.
