NY purge control

single turbo rx7

i eliminated purge control solenoid and check valve and caped of the vacuum line to UMI ...

then i removed catch tank and i caped of the the line thats coming from charkoal canister....

i know a lot of people just vent it in engine bay...buy i cant stand the smell of fumes inside the car...

my question.... is it ok to cap off the line coming from charkoal canister... or should i do something different...

The gas tank has to have a way to vent the gas fumes. If you leave it capped off, it can pressurize big time and weirdness can happen.

If you don't want the fumes under the hood, you can undo the line at the tank and vent it at the back of the car. Might be a good idea to use a small filter to keep critters out of there.

i was experimenting lil bit...
the way i got it set up now

line from charkoal canister to check valve to UIM so when the car is in vacuum it should be taking in the fumes and at boost check valve is closed.... it seams ok for now

Jsut disconnect it at the back, before it goes back into the third line Vent it at the rear of the car. If you are really bothered, tuck the line into a chassi rail and vent it into there or something.

The PFC does control the purge control just like the stock ECU does.
