The canister that needs to be relocated is the charcoal or evap canister. It is located in the driverside fender. By moving it, this provides a nice precut whole for the new tubing to pass through and air outside of the engine bay available.

Many get a PCM tray that mounts close by. Say next ot the hole. The cannister has been relocated to the other side, or merely next to the hole.

I've always said that a FWI on a bonneville is your best bet.

Anyone have pics of where they relocated their charcoal canister to?

Of the few 96-99 FWI installs I have seen, I have never seen a good reply to where the charcoal can was moved to.
