Whats up guys, most of you probably dont know me, but ive been on here for a while, just not that active at all. Anyways in the recent months, i purchased a 2.8 from a buddy of mine that had one come out of a blazer. I have a few questions about it. Ok, engine is in and everything is bolted down, distributor is even back in and so is the throttle body and all of the lines. My question is, is it possible to bypass the smog pump on the 2.8? I really feel no need for it, or is every vacuum line on the engine important? I see a lot that I could cap off, just not sure as to which ones shouldnt be. If I can bypass the smog, what size belt would I need to run? Also, would I need to change the oil filter housing from my old motor back onto this one? Because the blazer the 2.8 came out of has a completely different housing and my wires are not the same. Last question would be about the vaccum solenoid im guessing that is attached to the coil bracket behind the passenger valve cover, will I need to attach this back on for the emissions or would it be fine to leave it off?
