Default MAP Sensor

what does it do? and the vacuum hoses right beside it, one goes to the intake and one goes to the brake master cylinder. since im doing away with my vac hoses do i need those or can i just plug them off since i dont think they work anyway?

You need the brake booster hose and theres one that connects to the brake pedal I think. Otherwise you won t have ac, emissions, or cruise control, also no heat and Im sure theres something else im missing.

leave the intake and brake booster lines alone

what u could do is hide the vac tree inside the cowl panel

might have to extend some lines but i know its been done

Btw, the map sensor I think is a barometric pressure sensor and reads the pressure around the car for altitude and gravity and adjusts the engine accordingly. You will need it unless you can somehow delete it.

Speed density system = MAP sensor = needs vacuum connected to the sensor.

Mass air/MAF system = BP sensor = no vacuum hose goes connected to the sensor.

It needs both. the ""MAP"" sensor looks like the "BP" sensor but does not use the vac hose on the nipple. The MAP/BP fits ALL these cars:

what you are deeming the map on your maf equipped car is not a map sensor even though it looks the same as a map.....it is a BAP sensor= Barometric air pressure sensor!!
