Can you identify this? Is it important?

I am building a rear diffuser, and this thing is really in the way. Before I take it apart, is it important? I figured it was just there to protect some wires that could get caught on a curb or something.

Searching and searching has shown me nothing. Any one have Insight? Thank you in advance!Click image for larger version

Specifically, that plastic chunk in between the exhaust.

Looks like a protector for the fuel tank.

That was my initial thought when I fist got under it, but it has a few wires going into it. It seems like it can be removed...just want to get some feedback before I do it lol

The fuel tank is further up near the over-axle pipes.

Not sure what that is right off hand, grab the service manual and look it up.

The service manual? I have found the free manual online, but nothing that diagrams the whole car and all of it a pieces.

It is part of the Evap system for the fuel system. Whether or not it can be removed I don't know. Why not take it off, and build a new cover into your defuser?

That's what I was wondering about, but if something important I try to just avoid it all together.

The fuel pump is further up, under the rear seat.

That's what I was thinking. I would definitely try to incorporate a cover for this into the diffuser design.

The diffuser would be covering it, running from the middle portion to into my GT/CS diffuser. After I see how this one works, I might build it bigger. My gates are already pretty big, though lol.

It's the evap system. Needed for emissions unless you have a tuner that knows how to change all the stuff in your tune
