Black box, what is it?

Hi I'm doing a cummins swap on a 97 cclb drw 7.5 460 gas v8. Theres a black box on the passenger frame rail with a hard metal tube going back along the frame rail to, i think, the gas tank? I'm wondering what its for and if I can get rid of it? I couldnt find a part number on it but it seems like the ports are labeled with letters, if I remember correctly, like a lot of different letters, maybe 9? but i think just 2 or 3 lines going into the box...a mystery. Any ideas? I'm not sure my search function works either.

It's a charcoal filter used in conjunction with gas engines. Gasoline expands and contracts much more than diesel. Gasoline fumes are explosive, so that filter takes care of the fumes when the gasoline expands as it warms up. (ie. when you fill it up at the pump where the fuel is ~55 degrees and its 80+ degrees outside)
If you're installing a Diesel, toss it.
My neighbor did a Cummins swap on his Ford. It ended up being very expensive and fraught with problems. I told him that he needed to put anti-rejection drugs in the diesel fuel.
