As my Ecoboost engine is going into an Elise, it doesnt have a servo for the brakes

So in theory i no longer need the vacuum pump as i can run the vacuum pipe from the symposer delete to the turbo BOV and wastegate

Does anyone know of a delete kit ?

If not any suggestions to blanks it off or do i just simply leave it open to atmosphere. Also i have the solenoid on top of the engine in the vacuum line, if i simply remove this what will happen. I run a standalone ECU

You will have to make a blank if you delete it or it will leak oil. Yes you can run the BOV off the manifold but will need to run a manual boost controller. What ECU are you using?

Hey there, I'm sorry to be a zombie lord, resurrecting this post back from the depths of hell and all, but if I drive a focus st (not elise), is there a way for me to delete this vacuum pump, too? Also, mine is leaking a bit of fluid (brake fluid?) Is there just a gasket for this?

That pump is required in the ST for power brakes.

The cam driven vacuum pump would be leaking oil. I forget if its an O-ring or a gasket. Regardless, you would just reseal it.

Cool project Hadron, you should make a build thread in the Other Builds section!
Did you make the frame yourself or is there a place that builds them?
