Where would I drill holes to secure it? I need ideas.

Still need to know if I can run fine without the canister. As far as I know its only for emissions...but they said the same thing about the EGR awhile back.
In the fenderwell sidewall (on the engine side) and use U-shaped bands to clamp it in place, with, perhaps an L-bar under it to support it.

nice drawing. Maybe use plastic zipties to keep it in place?

BTW, the above drawing is a cross-section looking from the front towards the back of the car.

Yeah I got it...I'll start mocking up ideas once I get the INTENSE tubing. Heck I'll probably end up removing the canister all together and have INTENSE reprogram my PCM to ignore it.

EVAP should be able to be removed from OBD1 cars by plugging the vacuum lines going to it as the PCM isn't looking for any feedback. Some of the newer OBD1 setups may detect the missing solenoid, but neither my 89 or 90 did. OBD2 will need a reprogram. I used clips off a 89 Formula'* CC and used two of the many holes in the area to secure it to the body.

Ok I got the hard part done today. I tried and tried and gave up on getting the INTENSE 3.5" tubing over the throttle body, so I used a coupler. The PCM was a pain in my rear and for now its going to stay where it is because I ran out of time. The evap threw a code but I want everyone'* opinion on a fix I have in mind before I send in my PCM to be reprogrammed. I bought a PCM tray from GMPD, but i couldn't get it to fit right. Here are the pics as of right now:



PCM is turned:


From the bumper looking up:


Looking up through where the evap used to be:


PCM is pissing me off. I don't know where I'm going to put it because I don't have a large enough flat surface to lay it on. I tried in front of the headlight, but the wire harness didn't reach. The OEM PCM tray you see in those pics is being held in by one screw through one of the legs and another leg is tucked under the brake "thingy" (on 00+ models this was moved near the strut tower). The PCM isn't going anywhere, but just looks ugly to me and the harness is a little close to the trans. Here is a pic of the GMPD tray I bought, but couldn't find a location for (wire harness would come in at the lower left of the image):


Evap did throw a code after a few starts, however I was looking at what my ricer buddy sent me and I want you all to give it a look to see if this may work (they use OBD2 as well): http://hyundaiperformance.com/forums/topic.php?t=25610

Another concern of mine is waterlock. I'm looking into one of K&N'* filter wraps as a precaution, but I also want to block that hole where you can see the filter from bumper view.

definitly cover that hole Kyle! Can't believe you couldn't get that 3.5in tubing on there, I know it'* tight but looks like your coupler worked out for you. Don't know what to tell you about the evap or the PCM placement, it'* one of those things I'd have to see. Couldn't you pin it up against the washer resivor?

Well so far the evap fix from the Hyundai forums is working. I'll be watching for a check engine light and let you guys know if this works in the long run. Few more things to tidy up and I'll be good to go.

Oh on a side note: I can hear the supercharger whine like HELL now its awesome!

All done! Here is the finished product...



I relocated the PCM near the brake booster and all the brake lines kinda hold it into position, but I used 3M heavy duty adhesive industrial tape to keep it from moving:


This is what replaces the evap canister and so far no codes. The hose on the right goes to the selinoid, which is plugged in, and the other lines are what went to and from the canister:


And finally this is what I used to cover up that exposed hole near the filter. Its a cut out from a 19x12" piece of vinyl for stairsteps. I drilled 2 holes for the existing chin spoiler screw bolts and used more of the 3M tape to keep it in position:


3.3" pulley will be here tomarrow and 13'* are only a cool day away.
