Re: Lose the Emissions
I doubt that there's a kit or anything to help you pollute the earth. Kinda sounded like an activist? When I stripped my engine compartment down it was a long process. I figured the more basic, the less crap to go wrong. I started with the motor,tracking all the vac. lines, plugged up what I didn't need and re-routing everything I did. I took all unnecessary stuff off and left a VERY basic engine. Then came the hard part-the wiring-all those wires running here, there, and everywhere; what are they for? I didn't need them and they made the underhood an eyesore. I pulled all the tape & wireloom off and started cuttin'. I traced every wire to it's source and if it wasn't a must-have, I cut it. My samurai runs now without the ECM. Is it reliable? I drive it every day, I have to, it's my only ride. I ended up with the wires going to the starter, alt., battery, & dist. The engine compartment looks a whole lot better, and it easier to service. If anything goes wrong, there's not too much it could be. Brad.
