Earlier when I said "Auxiliary Air Valve (AAV), I meant Auxiliary Air Regulator (AAR), butt you probably figured that out. Some people do remove that - the only negative is that you won't have a cold, fast idle - for me, that would be a non-issue as it rarely gets cold enough here for mine to operate . . . seems like you can eliminate it if you want to, as well.

The actual AAV on your car can go in the "not used" bin, for sure.

The decel valve (vacuum limiter) = I do not use it (removed long ago as the diaphragm was leaking and causing an idle above 2K rpm) - I like the throttle response without it, but sometimes the excessive crackling during closed throttle gets on my nerves (not too bad, but somewhat).
