What was the specific year and engine usage for that part? It's clearly a flame arrestor, and that function was served on most Corvettes by a fine mesh screen press-fitted on the end of the elbow inside the air cleaner.
I don't know. I found it with my NOS parts and referenced it in a catalogue which stated it's discontinuation. It is obviously not applicable to my 327 and thought it belonged with a different hose configuration. Or even if it pertained to Camaros.
