It's a Ford "fix-it" piece designed for when you have idle problems that you can't adjust out with the Throttle Body idle screw.

Frequently I've seen (and used) them on 5.0 Mustangs with big cams.

The screws will adjust the airflow through the IAC.

I think proper procedure is to set the TB screw to factory specs and just to adjust it until you're happy.

Not needed unless you have other problems or reasons for having it. It is a Ford piece but not factory.
