AIR PUMP delete
first thing you need to do is unplug the air pump and remove the pump with its mounting bracket still on.
next take off the black plastic tube that was attached to the air pump and blocking the spark plugs. it has one 10mm bolt that bolts it to the drivers side head.
next under the car remove it from the drivers side valve. then unbolt the drivers side valve from the head. its very easy and being under the car everything is right in front of you.
you will also have to remove the black tube that attaches the two valves together from the drivers side valve so you can remove it. and of course unplug the electrical connection.
putting on the block off plate is easy with a new gasket and should only take a minute. again the back of the head is right in front of you. however you will not be able to re-use the two 10mm bolts. they are to long, you need shorter ones.
whats left on the car is the passenger side valve and the black hose connected to it. you will not be able to take these off unless you remove the manifold! once the manifold is off you can remove the black tube. you can also take off the two 10mm nuts holding down the passenger side valve to the block.
now you need to remove the metal tube connected to the passenger side valve and the head (leave the metal tube attached to the passenger side valve). you do not need to remove anything to do this!! dont remove the UP or DP or turbo. just get your hands down by the turbo and feel for that metal tube. it has two 10mm bolts holding it to the head. you can get to them and its pretty easy even though the whole time you will not be able to see them. once you remove them the passenger side valve can be rotated to the passenger side of the car and the metal tube will slip on out between the turbo and back of the block. then using your hands again get your block off plate and new gasket with one bolt at a time and find the holes on the back of the head and tighen.
NOTE. dont over tighten! the drivers side block off is 14 ft lbs and the passenger side block off is only 6.6 ft lbs.
now that everything is off you need to get the sensor off the top of the passenger side valve. you will need a razor blade and flat head screw driver. i started cutting around the part of the sensor that looks square. once all that was cut off i got a flat head and ever so slightly pushed up on it. the black circles are whats holding it down. they will break and you will hear a snap but dont worry. as long as the square sensor head and plug in are not damaged it will be fine. you will notice that there are some copper lines running down into the valve its self. you will break these in half but done worry, they are just the electrical connections that power the valve up and down, they have nothing to do with the sensor. just plug the sensor back in and zip tie it down and out of the way.
NOTE. the drivers side valve electrical connector and air pump power connector should be electrical taped up very well so nothing can get into the prongs. id also tape up the passenger side sensor if you see the copper wires sticking out under the plug in area. but dont tape it all up. if you look under the square you see a small hole. i believe this is were air comes into the sensor to take barometric readings.
