Default Engine bay junk~~

I think i have seen this somewhere but what can i yank out of my engine bay..... its very clutterd and i think i have had enough of its lip.

EGR system, Charcoal canister?

Cruise control? Windshield wiper fluid spray dealies?

Any thing else in there that doesnt effect vehicle operator any?

Not doing this for weight or anything just want a cleaner engine bay.

Besides need to make room for things that are coming a bit later.

We all know that when the windows are rolled up all the way that we cant use them as handles to shut the doors. That and I have the sunroof.
I'm here to tell you guys the best mod I ever did for my car. Was the AC delete. I removed 50lbs of crap. 1 less belt pulling on the crank shaft.
The results were better than getting a new muffler or glass pack.

The power steering is a pain to keep up. I preferr to get my upper body workout at the gym, not at 5.5k rpms. But to each there own.

Climate providing. Shuck the ac schmaz. You won't regret it even in the summer, Gents. Research it and see what it weighs to stay cool in traffic.
I do like my power seat though, even though i hate that it weighs as much as another passenger.

You don't want to remove that noise if you intend
to keep it on the street.

I can't explain all of that, thank god. I have never had to mess with it.
You need the egr. This isnt an old ford or a chevy.
These cars need all of that to breath functionally.

Is the best I can tell you. I don't want to be telling you lies.
I'm just the a$$hole

Where's Chambers when ya need him. HE may be able to explain it he's wise beyond me there, I hope. Like. Not....., my field.

Also you may pm mr.nickleye. He will know for sure and will respond when he gets on.

We have no emissions here. My only concern is that the EGR and canister serve more of a purpose than simply lower emissions

Something about helping to lower internal temperatures by recirculating exhaust gasses how that works i have no idea.... also with a 20 year old EGR system how much is it really doing ?

Ifs its necessary then the next question would be how do i check it out to make sure its working properly

oh and asshole, i think not but that other guy you keep talking to sure is....
