Plug Question

I cannot determine what the below plug goes to. I went meticulously thru my Bentley twice and I cannot locate the plug. This is on a 87 3.2 liter engine

Brown:

In the second picture, it is the plug directly facing you, with the two prongs in the middle of the open plug. I do not know how to highlight it, but it is the plug right in the middle of the picture that has nothing plugged into it

+1 Test port. Bugged the hell out of me when I first got my car and I didn't know what it was. Connects to TDC sensor on back of engine if I'm not mistaken. It's typically located right under the ICV in front of the throttle body. Never seen it located over by the AFM. -J

Yea, I located it in the wrong place and it will be removed and relocated immediately
