Subject: FTE Perf - Throttle Body

I am in the process of taking my 2.3 apart and found some unneeded
parts. On the bottom of the throttle body past the butterfly is a tube
that originally ran to a carbon canister. Do I need to plug this tube or
run a line to the cold air intake? What function did this tube perform?

gottago seeya bye

I believe I saw this truck in person a while back. It was a yellow 50?
w/a full roll cage.
It looks like a typical nice lowered street truck except for the cage
and Silver State Classic
stickers on it.A real nice truck and I bet it really stands out in the
pits w/ all the Ferarris etc.
