It's a ground for something, I forget what. Look on the fuel rail near cyl #8, there should be an exposed stud sticking up, it snaps right onto there.

I'm not very familiar with 4.6 engine wiring, but FWIW that connector reminds me of a sending unit connection, like for coolant temp or oil pressure... Is there any chance that it's not a ground? What color is the wire insulation?
