im pretty sure that the one on the left is the air mass sensor, and you'll need to plug that into a whole that should exist on the new intake piping, and the pipe on the right is some sort of air return blow off deal, in my car my kit came with a small air filter looking thing that you put into that tubing, or where the upper part of that tubing attaches rather

actually that might not be the air mass sensor, that might be the deal on the tubing right before the air box, but it is some sort of sensor, there was one on my 318i and my filter had a whole right after my filter to plug it into

I am actually sure the right part is the air mass sensor integrated with a temperature sensor. I couldn't find what the left part might be in my Bosch Motronic manual. Can you give me the name of the DME in your car?

Atleast on GM vehicles the sensor to the left is the IAT (intake air temperature) Sensor.

The one to the Right I am a little confused about, I will go look at my car later today and see if I can fugure out where to put it.

I actually just bought one of these off of ebay the other day. I have a 318ti and the ones listed for the 318 "only fit up to 97 and I have a 98" So I ended up getting the one for the 325, I figured since it has the spot fot the sensor I can atleast try to rig something up, if not it was only $12 shipped.

the one on the left is the iat sensor the one on the right that's circled is the mass air flow sensor connector the actual mass air flow sensor is the cylindrical portion to the left of the connector.

Ok I just looked at it in my car, the left one is definately IAT cause I pulled it and saw the sensor. The IAT should plug into your new intake.

Now the confusion still remains on that hose, it appears to run off of a air injection compressor. So I am assuming it is just pulling in filtered air off of that, so in theory if you just took K&N valve cover breather filter and put it on, it should work just fine.
