    HELP! AIR system removal on 02 SS

    Guys i am sure there are a zillion threads on this topic, but i am short of time.
    I am doing a head/cam/LT swap. I have everything done and i need to put my intake back on. However, i have removed the AIR system due to race headers. But the issue i am having is with the "T" like device on the back of the intake that has a small hose that runs to the drivers side of the intake. It connects to a module that is connected to the wiring harness. What do i do with these. I have removed the module, but what about the "T" like device on the back. are they fine open or do they need to be plugged.. Nobody seems to know..

    BY THE WAY>> I HAVE TRIED LS1TECH>> no good responses.. and there are a zillion threads asking same question.

    HELPPPPPPP

    Moderators any info appr...

    it needs to be pluged. if you leave it opened it will give you one hell of a vacum leak. any auto parts will have the rubber vacum caps you need. take the unused vacum line off and pop a vacum cap on the opened side of the (T)

    you should beable to get a pack in the (HELP) section at autozone or advance auto parts with 4 or 5 different sizes in it for a few dollars
    hope I helped!

    I believe it's the T that accuates the air from going from the top dash vent to the front vents... Make sure your A/C works on your front vents.

    or for an even easier fix, just stick the tube onto one of the coil pack bolts. it's the perfect size and in the right area. that's what i did to mine and it's been good for months.
