I believe that is called a muffler. It keeps the air intake noise down when accelerating.....otherwise it would sound like a 4-barrel carb opening up. Throoooooowwwwp!

Generally the Idle Air Control is a valve that is electronically controlled by the ECM and mounted on the throttle body. That's just a hollow piece of plastic....unless I'm totally missing something.

I would call it a "baffle", although it sounds like I'm confused! :rolleyes:

Can I reuse the resonator? The air intake hose that it attaches to is the only thing that has dry rotted and split.

The official name is a Helmholz resonator and as has been stated it reduces intake noise helping the car pass the drive by noise emission test. And keep owners happy. It does bugger all for performance.
