    What S body and where is it on the car are my first questions.

    Sorry my bad for lack of detail. Itís a 99 S14a that was originally an auto back in the day.

    That component is located between the passenger front turret and the coolant expansion tank.

    I had a look through Google this afternoon. A couple of sites said itís a drop resistor for the automatic gearbox. Apparently disconnecting it gives full pressure to the feed lines to the box which results in faster gear changes.

    Donít know how accurate the info is but my car has been a manual for years. If it is tied in with the auto box Iíd like to think I can throw it out the engine bay

    You're correct, that is what it is. Not sure that's how it worked, mind, but it is an irrelevance now
