Not sure on the name, but I believe that is the water jacket behind it.

I'm also unsure what it'* called. It is for the coolant to make a u bend. Only gasket kits I have found it in would be the full kits. Dealer should be able to tell you what it is..but they may not stock it since the car is out of the their usual number of years to be able to get parts.

That'* not a bod price. At least you don't have to pay $100 or buy a kit with 30 gaskets you don't need.
