Default What is this?

I really feel dumb about this. I'm not new to cars at all, just the ls1, I was cleaning the engine compartment of my 00 SS last night and found something that stumped me. What is the little canister by the ac condenser mounted to the passenger side head bolts, left of the throttle body and maf? I've lost sleep over this, lol, and looked in my haynes (which doesn't have crap for the ls1, only the lt1).

by the discription it sounds like a catch can or maybe cruise control.

Not my car, just a google'd pic. It's right in front of the oil cap with the wires running to it. I'm thinking it might be the cruise.

If what you're talking about has a tube running to the front of the intake, it's your EGR system.
