Anybody know which vacuum hoses on the 3T-C engine can be removed, and plugged, without causing the engine to run abnormally?
Yeah, I know I should just get a new car.

Uh, aren't they all there for a reason pretty much? Now on my car I have a unused cruise control unit so I guess I could plug the lead to that. Otherwise I think most of the spaghetti is for emissions stuff but if you remove it I don't think the car will run right. In my factory service manual they do have you removing and plugging various hoses when testing components but I don't think the idea is to just leave them like that.

The vacuum hoses cost Toyota money, but Toyota spends the money anyway because the hoses are essential to help the car run good.

yeah and toyota also has to follow srtict fedral regulations that need not apply to all states. iowa and nebraska dont have smog check reguraly, so why have all that bull shit that they have to put on there when i dont have to have it where i live? i would rather take off all that extra weight and hp robbing crap and have a nice running car that gets better gas milage and power
