My spider came with a box of assorted extra parts...this pipe appears to be for fuel supply. I think the PO removed it and ran straight hose for some reason...It's possible that when they replaced the old 3 port fuel pump to a newer 2 port style it was no longer needed. where should it go? Is this no longer needed?

The tab looks right for the dipstick, to bolt to the cam cover near the air box on an L Jet car.

Its for the S3's. The dipstick clamps to the block and the tube ends next to the valve cover. So you don't have to reach down into the engine bay to get the dipstick out.
