LIC Deletes Air Pump Block Off Plates
Place of Install
The airpump is fairly pointless on these cars. Its main purpose is to pump air into the exhaust before the cat. The exhaust gasses are hot enough that they will ignite when they come in contact with the oxygen, thus burning off more of the nasty emissions and also heating up the cat to get it working faster. This entire process only takes place for about 6 seconds on cold start. Decided to yank it out and save the space.
