Sorry that's a bad description. It would be the intlet or flapper side of the VAM. I don't have any intake parts except for the VAM. And that part appeared to bolt on to the VAM with a gasket between.

i don't have anything bolted to the flapper side of my vam. i have a k&n filter on that side and the other obviously goes to the turbo. its hooked up just like any mass airflow meter. i think your seeing the holes where the original filter bolts on top of the vam? maybe?

images.jpegimages1.jpeg i am thinking you may have what looks to be a mercury capri vam. this is the first time i tried to up load pics so we'll see how it works. the one is a turbo coupe vam and this second is what the pigtail looks like.
