What is this?

I was in the garage and noticed a black plastic thing. It matches the color/sheen/feel of all my engine bay trim so I assume it belongs in their somewhere but I couldn't figure it out. Anyone have any ideas?

looks like part of your intake air duct. Do you have an aftermarket intake?
