    It’s a spark plug. One of the holes is the heater air inlet, the round one is the heater exhaust.

    Thanks Jeff
    I though Naca duct is the intake where the ram air “cold” enter in the heater around the chamber and warm the air and go to the cabin.
    The other hole round one on the right of the nose, I though that: air entering from outside to the combustion heater is mixed with fuel.
