I know there are tons of threads on the charcoal canister delete, but the ones I’ve seen are done on a stock car. My canister has been relocated so the directions for an unmodified car is a little confusing for my application. I want to get rid of the charcoal canister. I have labeled the three fittings attached to the canister as A, B, and C. Please let me know which fittings I need and which ones I don’t. Also please let me know where do I attach the ones that I need to. Thanks.

When I deleted mine, I followed Boe's instructions. Hope this will work for you. Check HERE , it's on page 25.

Thanks but I do have the same instructions. It would be easier if my canister was in the stock location. My problem is my canister has been relocated already. Hence BOE’s instructions are a little confusing.

Pretty sure you just connect "C" where "B" is coming from. There is another small purge valve connected to "A" which I think remains in the car so it can still be connected to the ecu.

I did this delete last year, and there are 2 problems with it, be aware:

1. The ECU still trows errors since the sensors get incorrect (or actually correct) data.This can be fixed with an ECU flash where the evap stuff gets taken out, or so I hear.
2. My car now runs very lean, throws a P171 every now and then, and failed the emissions test. I can't explain why, but it does. Plenty of theories, but nobody seems to know for sure.

Now, I fabricated a bracket myself and put the canister back, waiting for an emissions test next week to see it that was the issue.

This being a Lotus, it COULD, for course be something entirely different, but this is the only change I made to the fuel system ever. Before I did the delete I was OK and after I failed the emissions test.

I will get back with the results next week.
