Update - I've tested the MAP sensor in my 1800ES. Works great. Based on eBay current prices (see below - note USD) I'd like $200AUD for the MAP sensor. For $300 package I will throw in temp sensors, idle air slide, fuel pressure sensor, cold start injector, throttle switch and some untested injectors. Postage extra but shouldn't be more than $20.
Here's what it looks like in a 93 for reference (with the dash removed). The bulb failure, headlight and fuel pump relays are all clipped to the aluminium bracket that also supports the heater/defrosted duct assembly. Hope that helps! It did change a bit from year to year so yours could be slightly different.
Just make sure the hoses are intact where they plug into the inlet manifold/throttle body (cut off the ends if they're split and re-attach). Don't mess with it - it is the charcoal canister - it absorbs hydrocarbon (petrol) fumes from the fuel tank as @VolvoHordz said and when the engine is running the vapours are withdrawn from the activated carbon in the canister and combusted with the fuel-air mixture.
The yellow relay is your rear wiper delay relay, and the black one is the front wiper delay relay As @ramrod said it's up behind the glove box. It will be clipped up there along with a white fuel pump relay. I have spare used ones if you want to pursue that option (depends on colour - could be green or orange I think).
