This is my first post here!
The truck is a 1992 F250 5.8L AT 4x4
I was taking off my leaking EM to replace with some shorty headers, and broke 2 of the 8 bolts
. That sucks, but while taking off the inner fender plastic to drill out the broken bolts it started me thinking. Does the airpump and all it's associated hoses, and the cluster f*ck of valves or solenoids or whatever they are on top of the engine need to be there? What are the pros and cons of taking it all out or is it not even an option? I'm in NH, so '96 and older don't get emissions tests, I would rather not have to deal with any of it if it failed in the future and I don't care about the environment so...
For that matter, what about removing all the emissions related stuff? I saw an EGR eliminate mod on a website: http://fordfuelinjection.com/index.php?p=61
