    I would be very interested in knowing where you got your Jeep smogged with the air pump removed. By state law, they aren't even allowed to hook it up to the computer testing equipment if there are any parts of the emissions system missing. The shop that smogged your Jeep with the air pump removed is risking a huge fine, loss of license, and potential jail time if they are smogging vehicles with emissions parts removed...

    really...well there is just so many tubes that lead to one thing there has got to be a simpler way. Ive got at least 5 tubes running to one filter thing and the top of it has a hose thats been cut....which makes no sense to me other than it must have been for the A/C which was removed but i dont know why they wouldnt get rid of the other junk that goes along with it. anyway i do need to keep it smog legal because im going to get a non op so i can fix it then ill have to get it smogged anyway.

    If you want to keep the engine smog legal, then you need to retain all of the stuff that's on the motor. Auto maufacturers aren't usually in the practice of engineering a bunch of vacuum lines and hoses if they aren't serving a required purpose...
