all the air pump stuff can go including the one way valve and metal pipework from the cylinder head

I take it that crap I've removed is not needed? In the above pic I've marked a solanoid in yellow, what does that do and also it has a loose fitting plastic cap on the right hand side, is this right? Cheers for help.

well the large pipe is the ICV, so needs to be retained.

The smaller stuff can just be capped off and removed.

The small solenoid is emissions stuff so can be capped and left.

Do you know what, in the last fortnight I've not got near her. It's been really busy at work 5.30am to 8.30pm all week so by the time I'm home in shattered. Tomorrow though I intend doing a bit more after work so will post an update. I'm desperate to get it back together and driving. I just need hoses and that's it really. Oh and a brake kit.......and suspension and full respray
