Default Wire tuck / Engine bay cleanup

I have 2 questions regarding hose deletes on the intake manifold; but first some history and background information.

Info:
  • AP1
  • w/ Air pump delete kit & block off plate
  • Hondata Gasket
Question 1 - EVAP / Intake Manifold : Can these be capped and the red labeled hose removed?

Question 2 - TB / IACV Coolant line : Can the coolant lines "A" on the IACV be completely removed? Where does "B" go to?

Quote from Hondata Gasket Install Guide:

Quote:
The Hondata spacer blocks coolant flow to stub that supplies TB and ultimately the IACV. This will not affect idle (the IACV is not temperature dependent in any way) and should keep the manifold much cooler. The tubing for the TB and IACV heating is not needed, but there is no point in removing it (it is no longer functional).
Summary: It seems as if you should be able to delete all the coolant line that begins at the block (covered/deleted by the addition of the hondata gasket). Then cap the IACV in and outs. Then delete hose "B" (once i figure out what it connects to).

Has anyone done this? If so, do you have any lessons learned or tips?

Thanks in advance,
Matt

Last i read on us s2k's the air pump delete doesn't work check engine will come on maybe it dose now to lazy to check but I didn't think saving 5 lbs and cleaning up the engine bay was that worth it, if it was easy I'd probably do it. As far as the coolant by pass I didn't use the gasket too much work (god I sound lazy) I did a custom bypass with a hose I didn't even cap off ddthe iacv its been fine for 2 years looks a little cleaner I'd do it again

I capped everything off except the ones that go from the side of the intake manifold to the valve that goes back to the rear of the car.

Here's an old picture but you can see what I did.

Thanks S~Factor.

Do you have the Hondata Gasket? I am wondering if the gasket would eliminate the one hose you have there that goes from the block what should be the manifold/throttle body (looks like you made an AN line for it). If so, you could eliminate and cap yet another hose and keep that hot liquid off the manifold. Right?

Is there any way you could snap some close ups if you're not to busy?

thanks again,
Matt
