Ok here is some of it. I bought the block off plate from INEngineering. You can probably do this without taking off the bumper beam & lock carrier, but I did just because.
First I located the SAI pump motor which is right behind the radiator. After locating that I then traced all the lines/hoses and found out where they all went.
Second I took out the Bracket holding pump motor. It has 2 bolts in the oil pan and 1 bolt in the cylinder block. They are right under the oil filter housing. You will have to disconnect the Harness connector on the pump.
Disconnect half of the pressure hose on the side of the engine so you have less hose to remove from the bottom. These hoses are disconnected by pushing in and pulling. Remove pump from the bottom thru and around radiator hoses.
Next, take out your intake tubing to gain better access to the Combi-valve. It is kind of a pain in the ass but not to bad.
Now you can gain access to the Combi-valve you have a radiator hose that needs to be disconnected. It might be a pain, but keep at it and take your time to take it off as you will still need it. There are 3 bolts one is on top, one is on bottom and the other is in the middle of the radiator hose and the Fitting Flange on the Combi-Valve. The one in the middle was the real only pain.
You will have to disconnect the ground wire and relocate it. I relocated mine right on top of the Valve cover. (hopefully that works) (Any ideas on where else it could be moved to are welcome).
Install the block off plate and the hose.
The only thing that I have left to do is the vaccum plug leading into the SAI Solenoid Valve(N112). Has anyone done this before? Can I just delete that whole solenoid valve or just plug it?
Where the bracket is located.
SAI Pump motor. You can disconnect the hose in the middle to make removal easier.

SAI Solenoid Valve on the left. Can I just take that compeletly off or just plug that hole?
