If you're not sure what it is, should you be adjusting it?

Its a vacumn operated switch for the dual runner setup you have. Theres nothing you can do to adjust it, so best leave it alone. Thats of coure its working fne. Rev your car from the engine bay, youll see it move.

Well actually there is a screw that you can adjust below that vacuum piston which adjusts the butterfly plates in the intake manifold but theres no need to adjust it as from the factory it's set so the butterfly plates open up spot on 90 degrees from the closed position, if you muckaround with it it won't open properly or to it's full degree.
