Charcoal Canister Removal

OK so here's my question... And yes I did use the

From what I've seen in the previous threads it is possible to remove the Charcoal Canister/EVAP system by simply capping off the vacuum line to the TB, capping the line from the tank, and putting a vented gas cap. I have also seen where people have said they have put a small filter on the line from the tank and used the normal gas cap.

My question is, if I delete the Charcoal Canister/EVAP system am I going to throw a check engine light?

Any help is greatly appreciated!
-Chris

In case anyone needs to know, the car is a 305 TBI

Re: Charcoal Canister Removal

It will not set a code.Yes you can put a little filter on the return line and use your regular gas cap.Gas can evaporate out and cause you some m ileage I`ve heard.I havent noticed a differance.I heard removing the egr can cause you some mileage,didnt notice that either.However I only drive my car about 6000 miles per year and when I do I drive it aggressivly,so mileage isnt what I bought my car for.BTW,make sure you plug all vacume lines.

Yeah I'm not all that worried about gas mileage, I drove my car a total of about 5,000 miles in the last 2 years LOL

Re: Charcoal Canister Removal

Did you see this thread:
http://www.thirdgen.org/techboard/tpi/486643-what.html

I dont think its worth it, not to mention its totally illegal to remove it on a street car in the United States.
