And "Infamous Car #2"

Default What is this thing? And why is it infront of a bolt I need to get to?

Tube circled in red.

It is on an 02 WRX engine, its blocking the 4th bolt to get the A/C compressor off.

I'm trying to pull my engine to do some work on it and I can't get to the 4th bolt to the A/C compressor because of it... Anyone know what its for, and why it is just caped off?

I remember reading in the factory repair manual to not mess with that. You can of course remove it, along with other things and then reinstall it. If I was to make a guess, maybe this is a port used on the assembly line at the factory.
I also think that the engines are bench-started on a special rig, at the factory. At that time, they make "special" connections.

poke it and call it mean names in a stern voice..

just bend it ' a bit' to get it out of the way, 15 deg is all it takes to gain access with a 1/4 drive socket or ratchet wrench..
