Airpump removal help please

I'm going to remove my airpump and it's corresponding parts this week to further reduce weight. Do I need to keep anything in mind when pulling these parts out? For example do I need to plug any of these lines in the diagram below?

Have you considered something like this;

Awesome thanks guys. I just emailed Nike and Mike, looks like they're out of stock.

I'm thinking about doing this too.

How involved is the process? From the diagram it does not look too bad.
Also, is an ECU mod required? I assume this would trigger a cel, right?

Really easy project on my 3.4 with clearance issues. I bet it can be done in 2-3h. It took me a weekend due to hot summer and cold beer.

One more question. What are you supposed to do with #7 in the diagram? The kit I purchased doesn't include something to fill the hole that this component fits into

I think this is check valve. Nothing to plug up. You will need to relocate vacuum canister and make a bracket 4 it tho

Yes, the ECU will have to be modified to ignore the SAI test or you will get a CEL. Most common is a ROW re-flash.
