Default Help ID these parts?

Hey guys,

Screwing around in the bay of my Miata today, and noticed two things that I have no idea what they are for, and/or what they should go to.

Anyone care to enlighten me?

Pic 1 shows a vac tee with nothing on it. Where should that run?

Pic 2 is another photo as a reference to the above. It is located right by the solenoid (i imagine?) for the EVAP.

Pic 3 is a blue connector behind the driver's side headlamp. Should that be connected to something??

Thanks a ton guys,

Does your car run???

Then I'd say don't worry about it.
This is a m.net question, but I'm feeling nice.

The blue connector is a spare 12V line, good for hooking up your rice *** HIDs.

The T is leftover from a previous owner of the car. That system is the charcoal canister. You don't really need those lines unless you like trees. Normally there is no T and that line goes to the intake manifold.

Thank you very much. I'll try m.net next time, but I like this place better.

To confirm then, the item at the top of the second shot is the igniter, correct?

It's not the igniter. It's a +12 source. I use it to power a timing light.

edit: I can't count past 2.

Chucker thats the 3rd picture.

BradC yes that is the ignitor. The thing below it is a valve that lets air from the charcoal canister into the manifold.
