K&N makes an adapter for the carb so you can and one of there filters.

What did you do with all the emission lines you took loose?

Lots of carb cleaner and pipe cleaners, but it would be a lot easier if you removed it from the intake.

You have to do that to install the Webber anyway, right?

no@Joe. The carb sits on an adapter plate that comes with the kit.

Ok so the lump on the right of the picture is a port that runs from the intake to the EGR valve. It was packed full of hardened up oil. Got it cleaned out with a clothes hanger wire attached to cordless drill.

Looks nice. Will it do a wheelie?

Go to oreillys and get a vacuum line cap kit. I plugged everything but the egr and egr solenoid. I even shitcanned the anti backfire valve. I got my exhaust shop to cut and weld the return line from the catalytic converter closed on both ends. I removed all that garbage behind the driver headlight. Left the gas tank vent line open.

Yeah I did the same, blocked off unused ports with vacuum caps. I don't have a return line for the catalytic converter anymore, I switched to a straight pipe and removed the cat.

you know i didnt even think of that. when i swapped the KA24DE in i had a third hose that ran along with the fuel lines. i just capped it off. but now i guess thats the fuel tank vent line that i have capped off. oops. no problems so far but should probably open it up.

Ok so there is a line that seems to have ran coolant through the throttle body, did you just cap it off or did you rout a hose to keep the coolant flow?
