I live in Iowa. We have no inspection, no emissions. I have removed all sorts of emissions on my other car that gave me power and cleaned up the engine bay.
Since, I bought the teg recently, I am curious if the following be removed or modified…
Purge Cut Solenoid Valve - Goes into Intake Manifold on one end and thru the hard line to the charcoal canister. If I eliminate the charcoal canister with it, I can take the line off it that goes to the throttle body and leave the line open that helps relieve fuel tank pressure. Only downside is the smell of gas under the hood. All lines that are being removed will be capped off, of course so there is no leak
regulator Control soleniod valve - I assume this is the same as a fuel pressure solenoid. Can I take off the connections to the valve and hook a vaccum line up directly from FPR to tha manifold for a pressure source ?
Dashpot with check valve - Archives say that the sole purpose of this thing is to soften deceleration. It attaches to the throttle rotor and is supposed to make deceration when you quickly let off the throttle a little less harsh. Chances are one won’t even feel a difference if its removed. There shouldn’t be any side effects either. I will do this when I install a CAI. Can I just take off the whole contraption with the little lever that goes to the TB?
I cannot find the EGR valve and no. 2 control box on the diagram under the hood . Where is it ? I normally block-off the EGR so it doesnt send exhaust gas back into the intake. This helps keep the intake clean most of all…
MAP sensor - Its setup funny. The line that its 'T’d off seems to dead end under the 2 valves. Why cant I run a line from it to a pressure source on the intake manifold directly?
Among all of the above, will unplugging the valves throw an engine code. I think the G2’s are OBD0, right? I would think not, but Hondas are picky, I know!
Sorry for the long post. Again, I am quite sure on how these valves work, but I would appreciate any education.
Hopefully, some of the guru’s and geeky members on here would enjoy this technical discussion and learn a lot from this :naughty:
