I read a while ago that someone found a way to combine vacuum lines and delete others so all systems still worked but there were less lines running under plenum. I think it included relocation of the EGR solenoid to the driver side of the engine compartment. Was wondering if someone had done something similar to this and could shed some light on what to do exactly? Thanks!

for those who think they can outsmart the engineers that designed the vacuum system, understand what you have compromised if you manage to remove a line or two. The car may still run, but something is not going to work as well as intended.

Go for it! These kind of changes and relocation of components are done all the time. Look up any 3800 conversions. SkiTime & many others were masters at cleaning up an engine compartment of clutter. Before you begin everything should be operating by the book and Just make sure you understand how things work before diving in. Examine everything you take apart carefully as well as the new parts your putting in.

You can do this.. Remember GM use to run 2 heater hoses to the front of the Fiero and somebody figured out later that 1 hose could do as well.
Good luck,

Spoon

If everyone thought that way, we would still be getting around with horse and buggy.

ouch. Spoon put it well. Understand the system before diving in. We are all not going to be as talented as Skitime, However.
