Default what is this thing?

as I am rounding up all the **** that'* broken [about 50% of the car], I find this broken fitting. So I thought, eh i'll jb it back together, but it looked like some other idiot decided white glue would do, and it'* now gone [the fitting at least], so basically that'* toast. So i'm going to my local yard tomorrow, and gonna pick up a new one of these.. but they don't let teens in without a specific part needed, so I need the name of this thing. I checked my service manual, and it doesn't say anything about it. so I guess you guys will have to give me a name.

That looks like a vacuum manifold. It'* connects to the intake and splits into several vacuum lines.

Am I close???
