Question for the more mechanically inclined members…

I was poking around under the hood last night and noticed this. Should it be connected where the bright light is focused or is it just some type of stop/bumper?

I tried to move it but it’s very rigid And don’t appear to be flexible.

Can someone with a 2.7 check and confirm?
🙏

I'm not sure what I'm looking at brother. Is it the hose's we're talking about?

I dunno but there’s a tear in that black boot in the photo. What is that?

Take another look. I circled the area in question.

Boot is twisted like it was shown to be on other posts. That black block looks like an insulator. I’m guessing to keep wiring a distance from the engine.

Thank you!

To me, it looked as if something had come loose and freaked me out a bit.

I knew someone here would know!

That silver surface that you circled with a hole in it in your 2nd photo is likely just a positioning lug on the side of the passenger's side cylinder head on the engine. It is probably used to hold the position of the casting before the internal surfaces are drilled, tapped, and machined.

I took a photo of a similar lug on the driver's side cylinder head of my engine (below right), using an automotive extension mirror to show that the surface of the lug is not mated to anything, drilled through, or tapped for threads, so it's sole purpose is likely for positioning of the casting prior to machining. Next to my photo (below left) is a photo from an F-150 2.7L Ecoboost engine block on eBay.

Below is a 3D drawing showing the same lug relative to the other engine components. All items circled in red appear to be the same positioning lug.
