Default is this the TRAC i pulled out?

my trac and ABS don't work and i don't really care so i'm in the process of deleting both of them. i pulled this out, i'm guessing it's the TRAC system? it could be the cruise control too right? or is that in the throttle body more?
what i pulled out

what's left by the TB

That's the cruise control you pulled. I don't have TRAC on my car, so I'm not sure how all it ties in other than the second (first in line) throttle body. I believe it's normally open, and closes as needed, presumably to limit slip by cutting power, so unplugging it at the TB might be all you need to bypass it.

lol is it really the cruise control? damn it. so where the hell is the TRAC? cz on some other thread someone said there's some vaccum lines but i can't see anything like that? maybe it's different for different models and years?

Sure looks like my CC... It was mounted on the strut tower, right?

In your second pic, the TPS that's partially visible in the lower right corner, right next to the clamp screw, is your TRAC throttle control. That's the extent of my knowledge of how/where it ties in.

Thrash definitely cruise control. You eliminate trac by getting a non trac throttle body or by unplugging it

yea i put it back in, it was on the strut tower. so does TRAC involve any large hardware and mechanical things or is it done in the ECU?
