any infor on removing the charcoal canister? did think this could be removed that easy.
Its pretty easy actually, especially if you've got the engine out already.
The vent hose for the fuel tank (IIRC) goes into the bottom of the canister. This needs to be re-routed away from the engine bay somewhere (I extended the hose and looped it up & round then back down and tie wrapped it to the front anti-roll bar, under the floor).
There's another two vacuum lines that go into the top of the canister. One goes into the inlet manifold so cut this back and cap it off as you don't need it any more.
The other line goes into the air chamber underneath the inlet manifold.
At this location there's three nipples that are available to use for boost/vacuum.
What I've done is use one of these for my boost gauges (standard+after market, tee'd together) & one dedicated for the fuel pressure regulator, third is capped off. You could stick the line to the blow off valve here if you wanted but, I went the route of plumbing this into the nipples on top of the inlet manifold instead so just capped this one off.
The biggest ball ache out of the whole job will be trying to get the old pipes off the air chamber under the inlet. Not a problem obviously if the engine isn't in yet!
Its amazing how much room this frees up when done and makes it look a look tidier too
