What sensor is that above it? Does it do anything when you flip it? Mystery switches are always interesting

It goes to the Wastgate Solenoid. It is the dump line for the pressure to be spent back into the intake.

Wtf?




It kinda sorta looks like an intake heater or crank case heater. Looks like it heats up the incoming air charge. Is it a cold-weather truck from 2 owners ago? Where are you from and the previous owner from?
