What is ther part that the Air Cleaner intake flex hose connects to that sits on top of the radiator support called?

For the 76 through 81, it was called air intake duct. For the 76 through 79, the part number back in 1980 was 379974.  Apparently the 78 L-82 had two ducts.  The part numbers were 14016116 and 472713.  The 79 through 81 also had the same two part numbers. 

Not sure if this will help but at least it's a reference point for the GM part numbers.

Yes. Thats it in picture one. The piece that the flex hose connects to on top of radiator support. I've noticed most people do away with that piece and either go without and just change the air cleaner to a open one all the way around. I'm kinda up in the air in which way to go.

I believe the purpose of the ducting was to allow cold air into the intake which probably contributed to reduced emissions and perhaps a slight increase in horsepower.
