Just a little background info, I have a 1986 SE with a 4 speed. It had the v6 but was removed before I bought the car and is sitting in my dad's shed in pieces.

I will be swapping in a 3800 SC engine sometime soon, with EGR delete, EVAP delete, and no #2 O2 sensor, among other things.

So I am trying to clean up the engine bay and I just wanted to ask the guys who know these cars best.
Firstly, I believe this to be the EVAP canister, and obviously I won't need it anymore and the lines that run to and from it. If someone can confirm that I would appreciate it.


Secondly, what are these two pipes that come out of the trunk wall? A wild guess would say that they are for the A/C, but I honestly have no idea.



Lastly, I just put the new wiring harness into the car, and would like to secure the two halves of the wiring harness where the taillights connect to each other. Does anyone know how to get the old bolt out of the old wiring harness to use in the new one, or what size bolt would substitute?
This is the bold I'm talking about


Also, for those of you who have done this swap, where did you mount the new ECM? The stock location under the center console is too small and the computer hits on the shift cables, among other things.

Thanks for any and all tips

First pic - Yes - it's the evap canister - it can be removed if your local laws don't require it for emissions, inspection, etc.

Second pic - cooling tubes for alternator and coil/ignition. Not required for the 3800SC conversion. Pull the trunk carpet and you will see the fan connected to the cooling tubes

No idea about the bolt!

leave the bolt alone, just clean it up. No need to swap it out. Keep it simple, you will have so many more challenges ahead of you, leave the little things alone. Trust me, that little bolt is the least of your issues. Not trying to sound like a smart a**, but after a half dozen engine swaps, I know what you have ahead of you.

The bolt is in the old wiring harness, I need a new bolt for my new wiring harness.
It uses the same connector obviously, but it didn't come with a bolt to secure it to the other connector.

That's why I was asking if I could get it out or or if there was a certain size that would work.
