It's for the turbo. You probably have an intercooler up there.

Maybe they are for automatic trans cooler lines.

Ding ding ding. If it's a metal radiator it's from an auto miata and has trans cooler lines on it. IIRC the auto ones are slightly bigger and better than the m/t ones.

If you go looking for a new oem style plastic radiator auto tranny models are all you see. Which is fine, they are cheap, have a fraction more volume for coolant, and you don't have to do anything with the lines for the transmission.
