What's this piece I removed? It was bolted to the firewall, just above the transmission tunnel. It's suprisingly heavy, about 2 lbs, iron, and 9.5 inches long.

Held by two 10mm bolts.

Haha, I was wondering the same thing when I removed it.

Maybe it has something to do with weigh balancing or the A/C system.

maybe it slows the motordown from goin into your lap in an accident?

Dunno never owned a 240sx or done a swap on one that had it '

or maybe I could have overlooked it.

Damper for the A/C. Used to isolate NVH from the line bolted to the firewall when the compressor engages.

We discussed this about three years ago.
