I've got one too along with the left and right side diverter valves that go with it. It's been in a cardboard box the last 6 years.

Looks like yours is already disconnected so you should remove it, it's just extra weight.
You have to remove it to be able to get at the back intake valves to adjust them on that side anyway.
It's driven by a cogged belt off the back of the cam on that side next to the turbo scavenge oil pump. You can just cut the belt if it's still there.

I've saved it in case they ever up the emission testing and I have to put it back on. If your air injector nozzles are still screwed into the cylinder heads at the exhaust ports you shoud remove those and the air pump manifold that feeds them too.

You can buy nice stainless steel plugs with M10 x 1mm thread pitch and copper washers to screw into the cylinder heads where the nozzles go. They're around $30 and pelican sells them.
Put them in tight with red loctite if you do that.
