What are these wire plugs for in my engine compartment?

Any idea what these plugs attach to? It is a 1985 6.2L with the Banks tubo system. Truck starts and runs great without these hooked up but i was curious what they were for. They are currently hanging out on top of my intake manifold. Thanks for any help, i appreciate it.

Looks like the model 80 filter head plugs, you have a spin on so there isnít any factory water in fuel, fuel heater and plugged filter abbility.

The other possibility is itís a EGR/EPR solenoid harness.

Thank you so much Bigboytoys! You are correct. I searched the model 80 filter and i could see in some videos that the filter has the same style electrical plugs. So now i will just zip tie these plugs together and out of the way.
