After I do the SAS delete in the ECU, can anyone tell me how to remove the air pump and the lines associated with it.
Thx in advance

Remove battery and tray.
SAS pump and bracket sit below it.
Removing the pump is easy, but the check valve connecting to the exhaust is mord difficult. I just cut the rubber hose a few inches from it. Looks crappy but ill delet they when I do a downpipe install.
If you have a stock air box, you need to plug the hole to it or unfiltered air will get in. I just swapped in a air box top off a non SAS turbo for a clean look.
Do a search and you'll find tutorials.

If you're in an area that does smog testing, they may balk at the airbox lid with a hole that goes nowhere, so just as getspooled mentioned, get a lid from a junkyard. I read a post from someone who did the delete but failed because of the 'hose to nowhere' - I think they were in California. I pulled a lid off a '96 and it works like a champ and even says TURBO on it - nice.

For the check valve, I was able to remove the tube off the downpipe and install a bung plug (sophomoric giggle) to make it look clean. There's some confusion about leaving the relay connected. I didn't want to take any chances so I left mine plugged in and sitting in front of the battery tray, tucked under the headlight housing.
