    Unplug the pump or remove the fuse. well, really you should just remove the pump all together.

    is pretty easy kenro. just pull the fuse in the fuse box in the engine compartment. on the driver's side underneath the bumper there is the access door that access the parking lights. It has 2 10mm bolts. Loosen them up, open the plastic door and you will see the pump. Unplug the electrical plug and disconnect the rubber hose that comes from the top. The whole pump has 4 bolts holding it to the frame. take those 4 bolts and the pump comes out.

    I took the AIR pump crap out of both my f-bodies. Looks much cleaner under there. My SES light is on the one that isnt tuned and is a weekend driver. This doesnt affect driveability, gas mileage or anything does it? I am going to get it tuned when I put headers on there but seems pointless to have it tuned at this point.

    No need to tune it just for removing the AIR, unless the Check engine light bothers you. Pull that fucker out.
