Re: Charcoal canister affect gas mileage?

Good stuff.

My EGR is still connected to the EGR solenoid. So I can leave that be and just cap off that port under the TB since I'm not going to use the canister right?

I guess you could close off that port under the plenum, but if you expect the egr to work, you will also need to have a vacuum source connected also to the egr selonoid.

But then you also mentioning that you removed the smog pump. I am unsure if that pump is connected to all of the other smog components like the egr valve or what the egr valve involves like the exhaust gases. So basically what I am saying is I do not know how it will be if you remove half of the smog components but how the remaining components will operate. Good luck.

Re: Charcoal canister affect gas mileage?

Smog pump just puts fresh air into the exhaust manifolds through one way valves from the diverter valve.

It also puts fresh air into the catalytic converter and fresh air back out into the air. All it does is heat up the catalytic converter faster and dilutes the exhaust gas mixture so that it passes emissions. Otherwise you need to computer tune the engine to get it to pass emissions easily.
