    From what I gather (kind of hard to understand your post), you took off the smog pump? Correct? You said you plugged the holes in the back of the heads so that what it sounds like to me. As long as you plugged any remaining vacuum lines on the car that were connected to that, you'll be fine. NOW, if you took off the EGR, thats a different story. Read this thread. I explained what SHOULD be done to eliminate it.

    Other than losing the ugliness and weight...there isn't much of a power gain to be had. Read the post I linked to if you haven't already. I went alot further in depth there.

    i think the smog just takes up a lot of space and i dont have cats anymore so i really dont need it anymore...im planning on taking it off soon i just need to plug the 2 small vacuum lines and find caps for the tube that goes into the head and the pump itself.
