3SGE Sensor Question

Postby tylerepple2014 » Mon Nov 10, 2014 4:44 pm

I was looking over the 3SGE Beams blacktop engine and transmission im going to be swapping into a Volvo 244 and i noticed a sensor looking part under under the intake. it has a hose running into it from the intake and then a hose running out the other side attached to nothing. i dont know what this is so i dont know where to hook up the other hose. I assume its some sort of intake pressure thing? any help would be greatly appreciated.

One pic shows it with the 2 wire connector and the hoses attached and one is with the hoses and the connector off.

That looks live a vacuum switch that plumbs into the altezza charcoal canister for the fuel vapor. You dont need that ;) Block that s@3! off.

You can even remove it entirely. Its to prevent the release of fuel vapor from the tank to atmosphere, so its fed into the engine from the back of the car so that the vapors can be burned up.
