Default Where does this connection go to

I just purchased a 2001 SS and was taking the engine cover off to do some cleaning and noticed this connector not connected to anything. Could someone please tell me what it goes to.

The colors of the wires are hard to make out, but it looks like either:


Have enclosed a pic to help.

Thanks in advance!

Probably for the California Emissions AIR pump system is my guess.

I had a '03 SS with CA emissions that had the same wire with no connection. I thought it might go to a supercharger if equipped.

Guessing it's for a supercharger too. My 02 Grand Prix 3800 na is the same way. I don't recall my 04 Grand Prix having it. I'd check my 05 Impala since it's related to MC but it's got a 3400 so I'm not sure it'd have the same harness.

One day if I get up there, I'll look at my 00 Bonneville, it has a L67. Then again, someone on here with one can check and tell us.
