When installing an intercooler i noticed this hose leading from the thermostat to the air intake duct (Hose number 7.)

What is the intention of this hose?? Can i just block it off?

that is the idle bypass line
you may want to incorporate a fitting for the line
it takes filtered air from above the throttle plate to below the throttle plate

Thanks that explains the rough idle when I blocked it.

Should only idle rough when cold.. after it warms up, the AAV doesn't do anything.

Mine is currently blocked off.. When I had the RX7 IC in there, there was a fitting on the IC just the right size, so I kept it hooked up. not a noticeable difference either way.

IIRC, the IACV is a solenoid and screw on the back side with a white power wire and a black ground wire

it's good to remove the screws and clean off the carbon

hmm, makes a bit of sense there. granted, i am missing the electrical section of my fsm and never had any idleing issues other than too high, which is fixed. but i have no idea why i though that was the iac valve, i think its from selling ford iac valves all day at work. im used to seeing something that stands out.
