Default Emissions Removal

I know a lot of the emissions can not be removed, I know if I remove the wrong ones it will cause my truck to run improperly. The main thing I would like to remove is the smog pump,I know the rear of the heads will need to be plugged afterwards.

What else can be removed?

Why are you removing this stuff? It robs no horse power, and helps the truck run better as well as make your cats last longer.

If they aren't broke, don't fix them, IMO. The smog pump uses no horsepower, and it helps the engine warm up faster when it's cold. It also helps the cats from clogging. I'm all for getting rid of the first cat for a Y pipe, but the second cat is needed if you ask me. No reason to polute a lot more for no reason (gain).

That sucks, be aware that it's against the law (federal, not state) to remove that stuff. That said, you can remove the smog pump, TAB valve, TAD valve, TAD solenoid, TAB solenoid, all the vacuum lines for it, the coffee can vacuum resivor on the passenger side, and the hoses leading from the fender well to the smog pump. There's a metal tube that bolts to the passenger side exhaust manifold that can come off, as well. For EGR, you'll need to run 2 vacuum lines, one from the EVP solenoid to the vacuum tree, and one from the EVP solenoid to the EGR valve. For the crossover tube on the back, you can pull the crossover tube itself, cut the send on, then put them back on backwards to cover the holes, use chassis grease as a gasket. Keep TAD and TAB solenoids for a little while just incase they throw a CEL, if they do, just plug them back in (but no vacuum lines, only the electronic plug). Thats all I can think of off of the top of my head.

pretty straight forward, pull the 2 bolts holding it on, then pull the entire tube assembly off. Cut the ends off of the tube itself and clean them up a bit. Put some chassis grease on the mating surfaces, then bolt them back on. Does your bronco have the check valve on the tube still? If not you got one healthy exhaust leak there.

Nope, the top of the check valve busted off, it was rusty. I thought of taking it off and having it filled with weld.
