Just wondered what this is between the engine/fuel lines on the left and the inlet manifold I'm the right. The long shiny box type thing?

Flux capacitor.

Edit: On a serious note, could it be some sort of pre-heater?

Thanks chaps, not that I know enough to mess with it, I just don't like not knowing what I'm working around.
