not doing a full shave just yet (probably should have during the build) but i want to clean it up as much as i can get to now.
AC is already ripped out, vacuum brake boost pump is gone, ripped out the stock cloth firewall and am installing that gold heat shield stuff, and am removing all the stock crap wire looms to do everything up in heat shrink wrap stuff.
its gonna be a pita but if i can remove most the unused wires, cut the wiring harness thickness down by half, and tuck as much as possible, it will be one sweet looking engine bay.
my question is what else can i dump?
what about this ~1/2" vacuum line with some sort of valve that goes from pre turbo intake to the intake manifold then has a thin hard plastic line running somewhere for fuel? what exactly does that do?
what about the PCV system? i am also installing a catch can and would like to just vent to atmosphere and avoid the whole pre turbo heating element and stuff, but what is the part of it that connects under the intake manifold - to the breather box - to the coolant housing on the head? whats the point of that?
ill be posting pics in my build thread along the way and thanks for the help!!
