This is the factory heater tube line which runs from the front of the intake manifold back to the rubber heater hoses on the heater core. These lines can crack and break over time, so replace yours with this OE Ford quality part from Latemodel Restoration Supply.
Used this as one of the required parts to do a PI intake swap on my '96 Mustang GT. The retaining bracket and/or the front end of the tube that connects to the water pump were slightly bent from shipping, so it took a lot of effort to carefully tweak it into position so that it would properly seat against the water pump nipple. Once in place, however, there were no leaks, and it's VERY nice that this design only uses one bolt rather than the super-awkward two bolts used on the original pipe on the '96-'98 models.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

I bought this for the pi head swap and it worked great
Ford Motor Company Genuine Parts, Motorcraft® Parts and Ford and Motorcraft Remanufactured Parts are all excellent choices when it comes to performance, longevity and value for your Mustang or SVT Lightning. And they’re all backed by a Ford Motor Company limited parts warranty*, so you know their parts you use are going to perform like they should. Put the same parts on your Lighting & Mustang that came from the factory!
Well me and my girlfriend had a day off and decided to take a road trip to Late Model Restoration. Let me tell you, we had the best CUSTOMER SERVICE ever. Jay was very helpful and knowledgeable about the parts I purchased. The showroom was clean and inviting. Also I got to meet JMAC that host's all of their YouTube videos. They also had project BLUE COLLAR in the parking lot, and it is NICE. I will recommend Late Model to everyone I know...
