The small box right on top of the trans tunnel. Is it the airbag system computer? My car is on a serious diet right now.

Not 100% sure but I believe it is the Yaw sensor for the DSC system

It's the SAS Control module.
It contains the shock sensor which decides if an impact is serious enough to deploy airbags and seat belt tensioners.
It also monitors the system to ensure bags don't deploy if a fault occurs.

SAS CONTROL MODULE REMOVAL/INSTALLATION

2. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position.
3. Remove the battery cover.
4. Disconnect the negative battery cable and wait for 1 min or more . (See BATTERY

WARNING:  Handling the SAS control module improperly can accidentally
deploy the air bag modules and pre-tensioner seat belt, which may
seriously injure you. Read the air bag system service warnings and
cautions before handling the SAS control module. (See AIR BAG
