Smog pump is what pushes the air into the air injection system. You need it for emissions, but that's it. If your state/county doesn't require cats, then you don't need the smog pump.

Function > Form, always

An efficient, properly tuned engine shouldn't need a smog pump to reduce emissions even if it has cats. The problem is that the engines aren't efficient as produced by the factory. Modern cars dispensed with smog pumps years ago.

A little off the subject but I was wondering where you got your side skirts? I want to get new ones eventually but haven't seen any I liked except for yours and the Stalker ones from cervinis. Thanks

if you delete the smog pump make sure you plug the holes on the back of the heads

Which would require 5/8-11 bolts, no more than 1" long.

Make sure you get a battery terminal brush "bottle brush" and some carb cleaner, to clean out the threads in the back of the heads.

Mine are Roush side skirts and the car already had them on when I bought it.

I did that with a pair of old spark plugs. They fit perfectly. Just make sure you add thread sealant.

You'll need a belt that's about 82.7" long (6PK2100). I'm also going to remove my AC compressor 'cause it has an internal leak (worn seals).

I'm not going to get into a pissing match with you here.. but you are wrong. Old spark plugs do NOT fit perfectly.

the correct size is what I posted above, 5/8-11x1"

Even if I crossthreaded the spark plugs I used, I also added loctite so the saying should be

loctite and crossthreading is better than loctite alone .

So, let me get this right, to delete my smop pump & a/c i need a smaller belt (6PK2100) 82.7" long? Also, I need to plug the holes on the back of the heads with 5/8-11 bolts, no more than 1'' long. Correct?
