Question time yet again...

When clearing out the bay and removing all unneccisary componants, what, if any, vacuum lines do i need to keep in order to keep running? I.E. Evap canister and such..

Since im eleminating at least 90 percent of the componants that use the lines, then do i just remove those as well?

Thanks guys!!

Not true, in B.C. in the lower mainland you must pass Air Care A.K.A, Air Scare. It is another scam road tax on people that live in the lower mainland.

True, but AirCare never looks under the hood, the usual procedure is pressure test the gas cap, look for something resembling a cat under the car, and emissions testing. I think for newer LEVs they also code scan the OBD, but I've only ever brought old beaters through AirCare :wink:

scam road tax... road taxes are good. will pay for the new bridge needed down that way.

i've seen some pretty poorly tuned and worn out cars get through aircare .. it's amazing what a difference a cat makes .. it's not a perfect system, but at least you don't see nearly as many gross polluters driving around .. you just have to head out to the unregulated areas to get a reminder of the crap people will drive if they can get away with it, billowing clouds of smoke from their tailpipes ..
if you want to complain about money grabs, then it's all about ICBC & their bogus insurance monopoly ..

To "register" a 4 cylinder here for a year for road use, it will set you back $582....so stop complaining, guys....... :P

Inbetween the butterfly and the valve. You can tee-off all four if you like.

He was asking if you were intending to turbocharge the car.

I must have mis-understood. I took it as he was asking if the "booster" off the intake was for turbo.

But yes, i am planning on turbocharging after i get the carb task finished!

If you are planning on turbocharging for sure.....just tap into the bosses on your cylinder head (look inside the ports) and use GTi injectors and cut down rail. Have a plenum made up with whatever TB you like. Injection is so much nicer for force-fed stuff.
