I have a new to me 09 America. I have some tubes that go into the head outboard of the spark plugs on each cylinder The right also has a rubber like flexible tube that looks like a vent. Can someone enlighten me what these are ? Thank You

As stated above.
That would be the Secondary Air Injection plumbing. Many have simply removed the system and used bolts to plug the holes near the spark plugs. It is there to help unburnt fuel in the exhaust gasses to burn off for emissions testing.
Simply removing the bits on the EFI modles will activate the Check Engine Lamp in the speedo. A dummy replacement for the electrical solenoid (under the fuel tank) can be used or a fairly simple change to the tune/fuel map with TuneECU can prevent the CEL if the bits are removed.
