    So I'm looking at a gsx I just bought and oh man I'm in trouble there's so many plugs I have no idea where they are going too. I need y'alls help. First of all how bad is it taking the power steering out? I can't remember the last time I drove something without it. Next the abs what do I need to just remove it all ? Now the ac ??? Can I just disconnect everything and throw away. Also I need help what are these plugs in the pics . In the first pic Why is that Screenshot_20190328-195156_Gallery.jpg 20190328_185208.jpg there I pull it and the throttle body opens where should it go?

    I’d recommend leaving the power steering and abs. I regretted pulling ps on my 2g especially if you parallel park. Not the worst when driving but heavy when not moving.

    The thing you’re holding on the passengers side looks like cruise control. Not sure what the connector on the drivers side is. Might be for coil pack.

    Oh ok thanks yeah I was debating on the PS . It feels good moving it in and out of tight spots with ease in my garage. And the AC is disconnected and the condenser? I think what is supposed to be in front of the radiator is gone. There's hoses just hanging around. Idk if I should fix it. Or remove it. Also. I was reading about abs. Is there any reason why I should keep it. Or let it go I haven't read anything about it. I hated abs in my Jeep . Is there a big difference in a awd car

    Yes. AC condenser is located in front of the radiator. Not sure which hoses you’re talking about. Pictures would be useful.

    The braking wouldn’t change if you converted from abs to non abs. Obviously it would if abs would kick in. I’m not certain what’s involved when converting to non abs.

    Why do you want to remove abs?

    Oh ok and there's one hose that should of went the the ac condenser and then there's another hose behind the motor that's in the pic above the canister is under the battery bracket. And about the abs I just wanted to clean up some space where it's at, it looks like a mess.

    The hose under the battery tray looks like the ac line to the compressor from the evaporator.

    Not sure on the one connector you’re holding behind the intake manifold. The other looks like it’s for the brake fluid reservoir.

    The other connector is for grounding timing or ECU...I think. 2g guys would know for certain. I’d leave it even if it wasn’t. Just tuck it away and zip tie it.

    That looks like the a/c compressor connector that your holding in your hand, if the car runs, thats what it is. The cruise control part that your holding used to connect to the cruise control module that sat in front of the battery on the passenger strut tower, it looks to be gone, put it back or convert to a non cruise control cable, I wouldnt leave it like that for safety reasons alone, let alone the looks.

    Yes. You can remove the ac line and all ac components. If you remove the ac compressor bracket, make sure to use washers when you reinstall the half shaft bracket to the block. Only the drivers side bolt.

    AA7A4A94-DB60-4C4A-B85D-40F318959E48.jpeg Just want to add you are missing a nut on the other stud and a bolt that goes through the empty hole circled. Also seeing the rubber in the mount is wasted I would go over the other 3 mounts and replace as needed. I would not drive the car like that.

    I personally would like to have a.c. but I can't since my FMIC is too thick and I'd have to get a custom d/s line off the condenser since the IC pipe is in the way. You're in Texas so I can image it gets hot AF there. Also depends if you have a fmic. On my old 2g, I had a Greddy FMIC and was able to keep ac. Most part's are fairly cheap expect for the compressor and R32.

    Good eye Jimmy!

    So I bought a cheap donor gst parts car for 400 bucks I'll be taking off everything I can from it . Radiator support, fenders, doors ,side skirts, bumper,couple clips, glass, its complete minus dash ac and harness so I guess pretty good buy for me. It's a 5 speed. So next question. Can I swap that 5speed into my gsx auto? I will be tearing down the gsx and recrimping and soldering all the cut and twisted wires they did. . I took this out hopefully I don't need it anyone know ?

    No, you can't use a GST trans in a GSX and retain AWD, you would need an awd 5 speed. Might be able to use the shifter assembly, cables and flywheel/clutch assembly, but I'm not 100% on that.

    The black canister in your pic is the charcoal canister, part of the EVAP system. You can remove it, but you will want to add a check valve of some kind to the tank vent, and make sure you properly block off the ports for the opurg solenoid valve or anything else associated with it.
    I would search for EVAP canister delete.

    So let's just willy-nilly remove stuff and you don't even know what it is? That is a bad plan. Before you go any further I would suggest you have a plan as it seems you have none at the moment. You need a plan and a budget. It sounds like you want the car to be a 5-speed.

    So far the ac was gone already all I took out what's that canister. I just got chiltons book so reading over that before I do anything else. And I wanted to 5speed swap. But my friend says just leave it auto itll be faster. My plan and budget is to build this thing completely. But that will be by next year. For now just going over it to clean up all the cut and twisted wires. Replace alternator and water pump. Move battery to trunk. And maybe fuse box inside somewhere. I will be taking out the abs and I'm still unsure about the power steering. This won't be a DD. Budget is about 700-1k a month.

    So I took off the turbo and manifold to replace this broke coolant pipe and I noticed all the screws holding the manifold are different and not the same. Then insee this

    It’s all in the fun of owning one of these LOL
    I’m in the middle of a complete evap delete among a few other toys to add in

    So all those hoses and junk are on their way to the trash LOL

    Should look nice and clean after all the goodies are in also

    But yeah that connector you showed at the beginning ... I believe that’s your crankshaft position sensor

    Shifter, cables, and clutch can be swapped between FWD and AWD, flywheel can not (AWD is smaller diameter). If you want to do a 5 speed swap, you'll need a W5M33 trans, the FWD trans is an F5M33 and does not have a viscous coupler inside to divert power to a transfer case (among some other minor differences).

    Thanks for the info I guess I'll keep all the other stuff from that gst And just sell the tranny by itself. I'm still in between but I think I might just go with swapping it to manual.
