    The "round thing with the wire" is the old manky hot/cold valve. The valve swaps between hot air feed from the manafold to aid warming up the engine, then switches to cold air feed once the engine is up to temp.

    Best thing to do is rip it out, and plug up the hole where the pipe comes out of the plenum. It should be a wee rubber bend, just behind the throttle body. I used a PC fan screw and a cable tie to plug mine up when I ripped the whole thing out.
