hey,

considering removing and relocating a few things in the engine bay.. wondering what you guys reccomend for each of the following:


1) PCM valve... is it needed? what does it do!? can it simply be unplugged, block off the 2 vacuum lines coming and going for it and toss it out?

2) resistor pack: obviously necessary, but is there a good place to tuck it away?

3) radiator fluid reservoir: is it really necessary to keep this? i mean.. if fluid comes out its just "supposed" to go into the bottle.. but if it doesnt i don't realy care.. i mean that bottle doesnt GIVE" fluid to the rad if its low on coolant does it? i don't see any lines going to it....

4) charcoal canistor: ... toss it out. and block off the vacuum lines? what about the lines from the gas tank?

5) heat shields above where cat used to be and throuhg out exhaust: are these worth keeping around?


and finally, is it worth re-wrapping the electrical wires in new plastic tube and black vinyl tape?.. i was planning on checking the electrical resistance of all the wires in the ecu and ign harness to see if any are worth replacing (in case of interior line corrosion)

thanks guys,

the thing i highlighted in the obnoxious colors is what im calling the PCM valve

if i remove it and plug both lines.. then won't my turbos over boost?

but should be fine once i install an aftermarket boost controller right?
