So I started eliminating more stuff and even though I know it would be easier to do it all at once, I did it this was so that if something doesn't work right it will be a little easier to trace the problem.

In the first thread I just wanted to delete a check valve to get my intake area a little more cleaner, and ended up deleting the entire line that that goes across the firewall to the intake and "Y" off to a reserve canister in the drivers side fender. This time around I deleted the other line that goes to the canister as well as the lines and all the check valves on the back of the intake ...... Much better

The last step will be deleting the pipe for the SAI pump and I will do this without getting a cell as I have come up with a different way around this problem. Here are some pics of the current progress ......

Nice.. So those 2 lines that run down, where did they go to? I always thought one was for cruise control.. Guess not?

It goes to some kind of vacuum reservoir in the drivers side fender and I just cut the lines close to where they go into the fender and then shoved the rest inside.

I'm waiting for the day I wont be lazy to remove that tank, weight reduction [>_<]

I just hate removing the fender liner.

I been wanting to do this for quite some time, just today i broke one of the tees under the manifold that went up to that brake booster check valve is. I really dont know what all the systems do so i choose to leave it alone. Looks clean though.

Hmm.. I am going to have to look at that when I get a chance. Have you used your cruise control since deleting those 2 lines that go there? That's my only thing, I dont wanna delete that than suddenly have no cruise control haha. A few guys on here told me that is what it was.

I haven't used my CC since I deleted those lines but when I did cut into the line I could here the vacuum escaping and I don't know why the CC would be hooked up to a vacuum system. I'll try the CC tomorrow and let you know how it comes out.

any chance of doing a vacuum leak test to see if there were any problems with what your removed?

did you get rid of the "Y" & check valves under your IM? I cant remember if it was in your other thread about the same subject...NM u said it in this thread :) what is connected to the hole on the bottom side of the IM where one of the hoses from the "Y" used to connect?

Yours is a lil diff from mine bc i have 98AEB but where does the line connect that is on the back corner of your IM - got any pics? just curious what is looks like back there..

get any more comments about your smell of progress from wifey now that you removed more of that mess? :) :)

I'm surprised no one has asked you about this. What do you have in mind?

I deleted two of the "Y" connections under the intake manifold but part of it is still connected as I am still running the SAI pump. But as of late I have no issues, leaks, and the cc works just fine. I will post a few more pics of eveything that has either been deleted or plugged as two lines to the intake manifold habe been deleted and plugged.

I will post pictures of the completed project soon, and I am surprised I was the first one to think of it, but we'll see how the response goes once it done ........ [:D]

It is hard to see in your pictures - where is the line from the brake booster going to, and where does the other end of the large "L" hose go? They both dissapear behind the IM. Or are they connected together with a 90 fitting, maybe?

I used the 90 that was part of the original brake booster hose and they connect together.

Never eliminate that part, that 90 actually has a check valve inside it, without it the pedal feel gets scary.

Hey fred, After all said and done, are you going to make a DIY style writeup? i want to do this to eliminate all the vac and boost leaks but get confused with all the systems and their routing/purpose.
