without a pic, I'm assuming you are talking a hose that goes from drivers side to passenger side. This is an A/C refrigerant line. If you are referring to the hose shaped lines running front to back, those are the shifter cables.

Thank you quadcammer. Looks like the linkage cable.

Yep....it is the linkage cable. I am guessing they located it there so as to allow one to drop the motor with trans still in car.

...Or, just drop them together like I did mine if you are so inclined.
