Default Name this part

This is a picture I found of a 97 OBS wagon. Looks just like the engine of my 97 L wagon except my L doesn't have this part:
So what is that part, and why does my L not have it?

Possibly an emissions component. Althought not totally visible it looks like the charcoal canister.

Thanks for answering my question! So on the L's it seems the evap canister is a black box on the right rear underside. I guess they moved it to the engine bay on the OBS?

I think it was some time in the 97 model year when the evaporator canister was moved to the back of the car... Not sure exactly.

What model L do you have?

It was probably moved to help with OBDII compliance.

Those cars with charcoal canister in the back have OBDII "enhanced evap. emission diagnostics" implemented (codes P04xx). With a round canister, you don't get a trouble code because of a loose gas cap.
