Less clutter is really the only benefit. No performance gains to be had, but I had everything apart for my turbo/transmission ordeal and thought it was the best time to delete. There are some write ups out there for the STi's but they only have one of the ports to delete.....the easy one.
I plan on taking mine out when I do TGV deletes and that boatload of crap. Waiting for KNS to get their blockoff plates in. Hopefully won't be too bad with everything off.
I plan on cutting the sensor off of the one solenoid. Ordered gaskets and hardware as well - figured $10 would go a long way against murphy's law.
