As I've got a DMTR carb rather than a DATR the hose that used to connect to the choke now just runs from the rear water rail to the head and just help clutters up the engine bay a bit more.

Can anyone see a problem with blanking off the ends  and getting rid of it?

Cant see any issue with it myself Stuart.  If you want to test before blanking it off just run the car up to temperature and then clamp the offending hose. Any negative impact will be obvious after ten minutes of ticking over.

But I cant think of a reason why it would cause an issue.

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall and torque is how far you send the wall across the field once youve hit it.

Can't imagine you having a problem, used to blank a lot off years ago, when manual conversions were the thing.....

If you do have problems, could just join the 2 ends somewhere...  as thats all what happens at the Carb..

Well Monday should be the big startup day so I'll try it as it is to start with and then blank the hoses off to see what happens.

Thanks,
