    Picked up a very clean '93 with BBK equal length shorty headers, catted x-pipe and 3-chamber flow masters.
    I'm having subframe connectors and a catless off-road Prochamber installed tomorrow.
    Wanting to remove the smog pump and install a different belt while doing the mods, any advice or recommendations?
    Ideally I'd eliminate the smog pump for simplicity and just get a new belt?
    Have a no ,ole catted BBK x-pipe if anyone interested, good deal.

    I eliminated my smog pump and used an 84.5" belt without a smog pump eliminator. I have AC and PS so length will vary if yours is different.

    Thanks, I knew it could be done with just a belt, but I was using a new shop and didn't want to give them headaches so I just bought the FRPP eliminator dummy pulley from American Muscle.

    Anyone know of plugs you can buy for the rear of the heads to eliminate the lines?
    My car has AFR 165s and I'd like to keep all stock parts removed intact, previously we just cut off the factory plugs and put them in the aftermarket heads.
    Man has it been a long time sense I've done the basic 5.0 mods :)
