I have a swapped 3SGTE and was looking into cleaning up the engine bay a bit. Since my engine did not come with an EGR valve can I remove the charcoal canister which is from the previous 5SFE engine?

Thanks in advance.

yes.. you can just cap the two Lines that come off of the intake manifold if you would like.

You sure can. Just make sure you cap the lines that lead to it as Burnyd said. I wonder how you'll pass the visual inspection with no egr though... Probably as simple as you don't live in California, I guess:hehe:

- Cap those two vacuum ports on the TB
- Remove charcoal canister
- Connect the line (from the gas tank) to the check valve.
Here is how to:

gary, would it matter if neither line ran to the TVV, and both ports on the TVV were just open to the air. i wouldn't think it needs to be plugged up since nothing runs to or from it now, and i already pluged the vacuum outlet on the throttle body.

You don't need to. But leave the TVV ports open will eventually clogged it with dust, oil fume, etc....

could i just take it out and plug the hole with a short bolt?

you wouldn't happen to know the thread size off hand :)

im trying to clean up my engine bay, so the less that needs to be there, the better.

i really just want to acid dip the whole freaking car. it makes me so mad that i can't touch anything in the engine bay without getting greesy or dirty. ive been trying to clean up all the dirt and grime, but its like its never ending...

Thanks for all of the help. I will do the modification over the weekend. I will probably have questions at some point.
