Please refer to my pic. Should there be any hoses where the red arrows are? The top green piece looks like the nipple for the hose is broken. I am not sure about the bottom one.



Thanks in advance

Top one yes, it goes to your charcoal canister, the bottom is a sensor, I have a brand new one from Toyota, it's in my car at S.P., $50 shipped, $60 something from toyota. I'll just have someone at S.P. ship it to you if needed. Just let me know.
Yes I know it's a big pic, but it will help, just follow the silver vacuum hose from the canister under the BOV over the intake pipe and into the BVSV.

To the metal pipe group in front of the 3000 pipe. My car is in chi-town, but I think on the other side it goes to the throttle body?
HAHA, found my stock pic, yeah it goes to the throttle body nipple closes to the front of the car.

Just remove it and put a breather filter on the line that goes to the fuel tank(line that goes into the firewall. Then cap off the BVSV nipple.

No I dont have a pic, but it's really easy, just follow what I said, and you will do fine. :) Well all it actually does is catch fuel vapors. Some people that remove it notice a little smell, but nothing drastic. And why remove it? It's UGLY and makes DP easier to get to.

mysupra has his vacuum hoses reversed at the BVSV in the second pic, right in the first pic.

there should be a sticker on the underside of yuor hood showing where everything goes...

Putting an oil catch can there isn't really a good idea since it's trying to condense the oil, but it's right next to a major heat source...

that bottom arrow is the ac fan switch. it should have a clip w/ a blue wire that connects to it.

I believe the switch is for the condenser fans, someone correct me if I'm wrong.
Even if your air isn't working they can be handy. Mine come on when the temp. goes up, air on or off, and I notice that they seem to provide that crucial extra bit of cooling when I've been climbing steep for 10 or so miles on a hot day, in and out of the boost all the time.

Please don't do this, you will be venting fuel vapor directly into your engine bay if you do.

wow a thread full of newb advice... except for a couple.

You do not need a vacuum line to go to the bvsv, it will not affect anything if it is just there with both nipples open, the charcoal canister will not be very functional though. Who really cares though? As long as you have the nipple on the throttle body capped to prevent vacuum leak it will be fine.

If you are that worried about venting vapor to the engine bay, by removing the charcoal can. then just run the line downward more or get a vented gas cap.
