Do you plan on removing it or replacing it?

Unbolt the bracket, you'll need the eliminator bracket probably from Ecklers or Mid America.

Take out the tubes on top of the headers. I say cut them off and weld up the holes.

Also, there's a black box that sits under the throttle body. There's a bunch of wires that go to it to activate solinoids. Get rid of all that.

there's a bunch of hoses too that run in and around the t-stat housing and such.

get rid of all that crap. 30 lbs of useless stuff.

It's an easy job, you'll be AMAZED how much crap comes out and how much more room you'll have without it in there.
There's a hard stainless line that goes down to the converter. That will be the hardest thing to deal with.

You don't really need to spend the money on the eliminator bracket. You can gut the smog pump by breaking off the plastic fins inside of it. Reinstall smog pump, and it will work fine as a pulley, provided it spun fine before. I did, works with no probs.

Go to the hardware store and get some nice brass caps to cap off the exhaust manifold tube.

Make sure you tape up the redundant wires safely.The pink / blacks are hot with the key on

Do what he said. I'm tellin' you guys I went through this in the 90's. Don't tear off all the smog crab because the enviro-police will be coming back, and then you'll be hunting all this imposable to find stuff. By pass all the emissions crap but make it appear as though it's still there.

Then what's the point? To me the point was to clean stuff up so that I could work under there.

After the first five minutes, it has Zero effect on emissions.
