I removed the evaporation canister, which is a simple task and only takes a few minutes to do. The hoses and electrical connection just need to be cable-tied to the mounting tab to prevent them from flopping around and possibly coming in contact with the exhaust.
The underside looks less cluttered and I shaved 1.3 lbs of weight.

I'm all for the weight savings; I have a question: Any downside in terms of performance or fueling? On the BMWs, guys have to do a bunch of reconnecting of the evap tubing to keep the FI system happy. I haven't done a canisterectomy on mine, so I don't know the drill.
