With more people running snipers/EFIs and working through my own setup a question comes up.

Outer vent control valve vents the carb bowl to the charcoal canister when ignition is off. So if you’re running an EFI the outer vent control valve no longer has a purpose, right?

Am I missing anything here?

Yeah good question. As it is now there isn’t a place to plug in the outer vent control valve to the sniper.

I pulled it out. No need for it. Charcoal canister vents to weak vacuum on the air filter now. I have not noticed any fumes since doing this about a year ago.

Good stuff. Does your rig still have the VCV? Aka the one on the carb side of the engine that connects to a vacuum port on the carb.

No. Just brake booster, vac advance, and PCV. You will lose idle-up for the AC, but it isn't necessary.
