You won't really see any gains from removing it. If it's working properly, it's best to leave it. Especially if you still have cats..

What if your not running cats? I have shorty headers, o/r x-pipe running into flowmaster 40's w/o cats and I've been looking at the smog pump deletes. What are the benefits?

are you already running an egr delete? if u plan on running a blower one day "centri" u should just leave it on. its not really hurtn anything either or. if u get a full horse from taking it off ill be surprised.

but hell, take it of if u r just looking for something to do.

or u could take it apart and gut it... i did that to mine and then filled it with wheel bearing grease. that way its just a pulley with no real resistance, and u dont have to worry bout it lockn up later.

dats just my opinion though

The main reasons people remove is for high HP applications and for a "cleaner look". If you don't have cats, then the smog pump isn't really doing much, so you might as well not have it.

sum centrifugal superchargers require u to have the pollution pump in place cause of how the pulleys run. and others like my powerdyne r set-up so itsa pain in da *** to try to use a by-pass pulley. so i ended up giving a guy 10 bucks for his pump. and putting it on, cause mine had been looong gone lol.

when u start blower shop'n u will see wut im talkn bout.

Thanks, I wanted to whipple mine but I talked to a friend and he told me that if I wanted to stay sleeper looking than the whipple was out cause I'd need a new hood. So would gutting my smog pump work with the other s/c's?

Oh no, I love the s/c sound, nothing like it or the feel, except when you dust a $60,000 ride in a '95 that cost me $6,000 and another $8,000 in the motor. The surprised look on their face is priceless!
