The 2.5L box over the throttle body

What does that box do over the throttle body on the 2.5L other than make it PIA to get at the TB to clean it ?
My 4.0l XJ does not have it or our 4.0L ZJ but all our 2.5L TJ's do [4 now].

I think it's a resonator. Like a muffler for the intake alot of cars will have a little tuned box on the intake to get ride of intake noise.

It's not important, most of the CAI systems eliminate it and plug right into the TB.

Actually I was just wondering if I could replace it with the air tube I have from a 4.0 XJ that the owner put one of those fancy bling bling air tubes and K&N filter on.
