    Working on my cam belts, and I noticed there is a large C clamp mounted on a heat shield behind the engine on the passenger side. There is also an air duct that points down towards the engine compartment.

    I was watching a video and noticed what looked like a silver hose (similar to what's coming off the back of the alternator) that's being held by that clamp.

    I can't find this part on any diagram, and I'm not ever sure what it's supposed to connect to or point at.

    (I took a screen grab and it's the silver duct in the lower right corner)

    That could be it! Where does it point or what is it directed towards?

    Where you have it mounted is the correct position. The end pointing towards the motor is open. That end doesn't connect to anything, it just vents cool air to the front of the motor. Mid-engine cars have been known to have cooling issues. This is just one solution that helps with cooling.
