I have 2 questions regarding hose deletes on the intake manifold; but first some history and background information.
Question 1 - EVAP / Intake Manifold
- w/ Air pump delete kit & block off plate
- Hondata Gasket
: 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:
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).
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,
