    It is probably your diagnostic port for your computer.

    The 87's had Throttle Body Fuel Injection if I'm not mistaken. That's the port for plugging in code readers/scanners, etc. to get diagnostic and error codes from the computer and various engine sensors.

    yea if its for diagnostics, then i believe it should have a female that recieves 12 prongs, and a groove on the outside of the connector for lining up the male end.
