Default Removing charcoal canister

Hey guys,

Yesterday I received my chipped OBD1 ECU and conversion harness and I was wondering if I can remove my charcoal canister with out getting a CEL? I currently have the engine removed from my car and want that thing out of there. I'm going to be tuning my car myself using crome pro but I don't want a check engine light because I removed the sensors. I know if I were to remove it and stay OBD2B I would throw a code but I don't know if OBD1/ crome look for it.

Any help Would be great.

So if I pinch/block off the return line will it pass emissions? Like sounds stupid but they have a procedure for looking for a charcoal canister. What about if I just move my black catch can with red hoses to the charcoals spot...

if you have emissions just leave it hooked up.. once you pass remove it lol.

just remember to keep it and all hoses around for when your next test comes

Correct, its a place to absorb the vaporized fuel in your tank to reduce the Hydrocarbons of gas that come out of your gas cap when you open it. another great emissions idea.

No it doesnt effect power at all. The vacuum line from the canister to the manifold is just so it can purge and burn some of the vapors in the canister. Nothing thats going to add or subtract power.

^^ exactly what he said!! the only "useful" reasons i can see to remove one would be

you live in a state that doesnt have emissions

you need the vac port on the intake for somethng else (highly unlikely b/c its so small)

you need the room on the fire wall for a catch can

not that good of reasons really... but that all i can think of lol
