A little more help with the \"old 258\" please

Well after alot of work "and some money", I have a re-built head going back on my 86" 258, along with a new valve cover "no more plastic". I also got rid of the Carter BBD for a Carter from an earlier CJ. The head has been put back on and the intake should be on by the end of the week. The computer will be removed as well as all the "non-essential other things" My questions are as follows, exactly what needs too stay? I have the cooled intake with a few sensors on it, do any matter? Also I am interested in a vacume diagram, I will have the basics EGR, charcoal canister, PCV, I think that is all. and lastly in order to REALLY clean up the engine bay is it best to cut and remove all wires I will not need or leave them for future refrence? Thanks for all the help.

Here is a vacuum hose diagram:

This page covers most of the sensors and computer related items on the 258:

I have re-done all of my hoses and checked all my sensors. I can explain what the sensors do and how the relay info to the computer if you have any questions. I have my '85 setup with the GM HEI and the stepper unplugged on the Carter. All of my other sensors are connected as they would have been from the factory. My CJ runs very well with this setup. Let me know if you have any questions.

Personally, unless you are looking for all out performance, I would run the egr and the air pump. They allow the combustion chamber to run cooler and dont hurt performance much if working properly. Now, I'm no expert on this, but from what I've seen they are OK. Plus, helps with smog problems, which in denver can be disgusting.
