Default whats under the oil pan

just changed the oil pan gasket on my 03 cruiser and when it was off I was expecting to see the crank but there is a gold box covering most of the bottom of the engine , its chain driven and the chain is loose , anyone know what this is?

Does it look anything like this?




This is from an SRT4 engine and that gold thing is called the Balance Shaft Assembly.

Side view with oil pump pick-up.
