Default what is the small hole above exhaust ports?

1999 sl2 dohc, roller head

On the cylinder head there are the 4 exhaust ports and in the middle above each is a small hole. What is that for and what does it do and where does it go?

It is plugged when the exhaust manifold gasket is is in place and doesn't vent through the gaskets....

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Air pump emissions crap that special '99-'00's got and all '01-'02's got.

...
The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)
