    cel = check engine light

    my 02 has an mbc, I'm going to take it off, my question is do you just connect the 2 ends together and the computer controls the boost or do I need to replace it with something?

Ultimately, you need to get the car back to a good, reliable, solid baseline by removing the parts that are known to cause problems before you can start troubleshooting what's wrong now.
