Depends on if you need to get the car smogged... also, the car will run richer on the stock ecu, and you have the possibility of fowling up your plugs..

Exactly what i needed to find out... I am using a Power Fc... So will it still effect the plugs in any way?

you should have no problem now that your going single you can remove that nightmare spider assy with all that vac ****. you wont need it anymore with a pfc. you will have much less chance of a vac. leak. most of it is use for running the twin set up. I know there are some write ups on what to remove and what you need to keep and where to find it..you will have no trouble with the pfc running the single and removing air pump and all the other stuff.go here for block off plates

goin single will make you not pass emisisons anyways... you might as well get a midpipe, get rid of the air pump and call it a day
