    I assumed it was a surge/pulse damper of some sort but I’m not 100% sure, if anyone knows what it is I’d like to know too

    It’s the Dampner.

    I removed it.

    I’m not going to say it’s important. But I chucked it in the bin without batting an eye lid.

    IF you have rubber fuel lines instead of the original which were a hard plastic you might not really notice a difference.  With all the injectors opening and closing at the same time you can get what they call fuel hammer which is just the fuel pulsing in the fuel lines that can be heard through the chassis in really bad cases.  The hard fuel lines would make this worse as there is no give in em but rubber lines can flex somewhat which can absorb some of that pulsing.

    I tried getting another one but they aren’t available anywhere and are obsolete from Holden. Whats involved in removing it, do I just replace the hose from the firewall to the fuel rail with a new piece of hose? Also what do I do about the quick release connector? Should I just put new hose on the firewall line and clamp it?
