I searched for this but couldn't find a good thread. Most people either remove it or bypass it. I'd like to get rid of those stupid smog lines, but leave the pump intact in case I need it later. Also I could care less about shaving 10lbs off the front end. Will it ruin it to plug it up but leave the pulley spinning on it? I just paid $35 for a new belt, so buying another just to bypass it is out of the question.
