Disconnect it and see what happens.  If bad things happen, you need it.

Get a service manual and check the harness drawings - the EFI in the 280Zs had it's own harness that only connected to the rest of the electrical system in a couple of places - you can likely just pull the whole EFI harness in one piece rather than trying to hack it up and wondering where the rest of it goes.
