Back to the issue with the ICV tube popping out. I'm going to be coming back from europe in a week and want to get back to work on the car. I was thinking about just getting rid of the ICV all together, pipe tap the hole and plug it. Have any of you guys done that or read of people that have done that? I figure I can just use the screw on the throttle body and just crack it enough that it will idle. The car doesn't need to be e-tested so I don't really care if it has to idle a bit higher. The reason I'm asking is because I'd rather just eliminate potential leak points than create them. If I run the ICV then I need to plumb it back into the charge piping because it will leak boost and in order to do that I need to weld on a bung and have another coupler with two clamps.
