2.4 Vacuum Parts, whats the black box?

2008 2.4 jtdm (210)

Im trying to trace an issue and need to know what the black box mounted on the back of the engine is.

It is part of the vacuum system, there are two vacuum pipes running over the right hand side of the engine from front to back and they go into a black box on the rear (intake) side of the engine.

What is this box and does anybody have a part code as I cant find it on eper?

Its a vacuum tank

item 8 51758382 VACUUM TANK

Looking at the eper description it may be something to do with the egr control when you look up the pipes which are in the exhaust control system section.

I'm not 100% sure what it does only that if the pipes come off you have next to no turbo boost.

Pretty sure it's for the variable geometry turbo solenoid valve.
