TCS valve. Part of the VSS/TCS system. A few have deleted it but you'd have to do some research as to how.

Yup, basically the second one acts to cut engine power when needed as part of the traction control system. Seems like a lot of work to remove it, for no real benefit. The stock intake system is already more than large enough even for FI applications (short of a big custom turbo setup, in which case your transmission is going to be a far bigger worry than the intake size). 6-speed CL-S doesn't have the 2nd throttle, as they don't have traction control (though they more than make up for this with the LSD they have over the auto).
