Default Brain Spark.

I had me a brain spark while building something under the hood. I know you guys hate how much room that Charcoal Canister takes up, and I looked at mine, It'* just a little basket, with a rim over the edge of the metal and two screws. So, you pull out the W/F Res. Pop out the other 10mm bolt holding it in, Rip out the plastic thread thingies, and hang the basket off two 1/4*20*3 bolts, with fender washers, Make a little round peice the same size as the basket out of the tin you had in the shed, put it all together, and the only thing popping up is the two hoses, gives you like 2" more clearance for the big booming CAI box.

Spark #2: The horn can be moved back 2" onto the mount used by LeSabre'*. It'* 3/4" behind the mount for the W/F res. Gets that out of the way.

Spark #3: There are two connectors right there too, pop those over to the other side of the bracket, cable tie to keep out of harms way.
