I'm not positive, but it looks like that hole is a place where an air intake sensor would go... could be wrong.. free bump

thats true. it was built and made with that in place there. so i think it needs it. but to tell you the truth, i don't know exactly what the specific hose does. it looks like you got it off the intake duct part.

isn't that go to an idle control, i have no idea about e36's but on the e30's any hose comin off the intake before the throttle body, is for the ICV. i don't even know if the e36's have those though

yes you need it. its should be a cooler hose for the head. besides, you cant bolt the intake onto the manifold....
you have to have the Mass Air-Flo Meter and the Throttle body in there somewhere.

as i said before, dont try to cut corners and remove a bunch of stuff. Espically if you dont know exactly what you are doing.
