Hello
I have a question ,when you do the small air box mod you cap the one side to the throttle body which I understand that but you trace that back to a valve which is called a Vacuum control solenoid valve which is located on the frame.
do you remove this valve ? its not being used anymore, because you have capped it off ,I like things clean looking in the engine area and instead of having loose lines caped off and laying around I would rather remove them if i could .and the valve if needed to stay for one reason or another do you cap it or leave it open .Im referenceing page 4-23 in the service manual. any help would be great.

The valve also connects to the ECU...if you remove it you might get a trouble code (FI light would come on)

for something(but bump the ingition fuse if you add
something big)

I'm doing this mod now.

Any pics of what you took off and where you finally capped the line?
