      hey guys so a snatched up a nice 24v for my MK2 project im getting the ball rolling on. I want to do a shaved engine bay (as best I can, we will see what happens ) which will require me to get rid of all the "extras" I wont want anyways.

      The car will see boost, no power steering, no heater, no a/c. Can someone help me make this engine as simple as I can?

      I just did this actually - it's still fresh in my mind. I still have P/S, but A/C, EVAP, SAI & PCV are all deleted, along with the windshield washer reservoir.

      What do you wanna know exactly?

      A/C delete is self explanatory - just remove everything, but dispose of the freon in a responsible manner plz! Grab a shorter belt for VR6 (non A/C) from MJM and you're good. Hot, but good.
      edit: I dunno where you'd grab a belt for PS & AC delete.

      EVAP - I left the solenoid plugged in and tucked it out of the way under the passenger side wheel liner. Unwrap the wire (it's long). It's also written out of the tune.

      SAI - I used an integrated engineering block of plate, and just remove everything and cap off extra vac connections. Remove the vacuum reservoir too, it's not needed. If I remember correctly the block off plate allows a barbed fitting to connect to the heater core. If you're not gonna use that then I'd just use a plug there or make my own block off plate.

      PCV - I cut the wires to the connector and spliced them together. No codes, but it may be written out as well.

      Windshield washer reservoir - same as PCV, I cut the wires before the connector and spliced them together. No codes.
