Removing secondary air injection

I want to know if anyone knows if the European cars that do not run the secondary air injections have the vacuum canister that our cars do? I am in the process of removing my secondary air injection and I noticed that on my car there is a vacuum line that runs to the resentence flap in the crossover tube. My car is a 2002 Boxster S. Thank you everyone for your help.

Yes, they do have the vacuum canister.
Unless you reprogram your car's ECU as an RoW you will get a CEL when you remove the Secondary Air Pump.
Happy Boxstering,
Pedro

Anyway besides the ROW flash to bypass the CEL when losing the secondary air injection? I've already got a Softronic reflash to deal w/ other mods...

I will be going with the ROW tune or a custom one.
