Well it's not A/C I can tell you that. Sounds like you are describing the fuel tank, I will take a look see if I can find a picture

Probably some emissions control equipment. Newer cars burn fuel vapors that used to be vented to the atmosphere.

Yep, the vapors are sucked in to a canister with activated charcoal which soaks up the fumes, or vapor, and is purged when you run the car...how big is this box you are talking about?
