Help! Where does this plug go?

Hi, Ive been having a hard time finding where this connecter goes as I took the intake manifolds off for some maintainance.
It has two pins like a fuel injector plug, but not enough pins to be a sensor, help?

Which side of engine? I have one out and can look quickly.

I see a connector that needs a wire:

Evap purge valve or something like that.

If that is the passenger side, it's either the sai pump or engine bay fan

Looks like driver side and goes to where 78F pointed out.

Right above what looks like a vinyl hose from home depot that will most likely melt.
