I like to get rid of pointless and emission related everything. With that said, has anyone bypassed the coolant lines going to the throttle body? It looks like the only thing you can do is tie the lines in together with the design of the coolant hoses having a molded T.
Anything thing, the vacuum tree on the firewall looks like it supplies vacuum to mostly emission stuff. Has anyone deleted it? The only line I would have to supply vacuum to is the HVAC control head, the rest of the lines look like they go to the EGR solenoid. So far, the valve cover to intake hose and PCV lines are gone, looking to clean up the engine bay.

Honesty you would be better off leaving the the emissions intact. Another member deleted the said items and had issues. The car ran very rich and got a lot of carbon build up in the cylinders, which caused poor idle and horrid fuel economy. The egr helps keep the combustion camber temperatures down and the pcv system get moisture out of the crankcase and oil.

way to think youre smarter than an Engineer. Some of that stuff isnt just on there cuz the Fed Govt. says it has to be.

it has a reason. if a clean engine bay is all youre looking for, there are ways to hide the hoses and valves.

Leave the coolant lines alone, changes there wont net you any power without changes in tuning. You can replace the stuff with lines that are easier for you to hide, and you can cover some of that stuff with looms to make it look pretty or hide the stuff better

Put your PCV system back on ASAP. You are allowing blowby and crankcase gasses to accumulate inside the engine. These gasses turn into acid and will eat your pistons, bearings, block, head, and anything else they come in contact with. Also, your oil will turn to sludge very quickly. You are severely shortening the life of your engine by doing that. The OBD-II electronics are calibrated to have all of the emissions systems operational. Removal of any of them offsets that balance and can cause issues like poor idle, a lack of power, poor fuel economy, and in a worse-case scenario, killing the engine. Sludge accumulation often contributes to dropped valve seats.
