Name that part

Can anyone tell me what that black plastic thing is above and behind the turbo down pipe? This 7.3L is in a 2000 E-450. 10 Karma points to the first one with an answer.

I do believe that's a "turbo intake resonator". The vans have them but the trucks don't. The vans don't have an intercooler - maybe that's why they have an intake resonator?

Mr. Moe gets the points!

Not much out there about this part, but what there is suggests that it's not too useful or effective. I have to pull the turbo to repair a leaky pedestal and this resonator may get pulled while I'm at it.

For 20 more points, is there any downside to deleting the thing?
