Default Dafuq is this and can I remove it??

I'm in the process of doing the vac reduction and have gone through thread after thread on how to do it. I was going pretty good with everything until I can across two parts that weren't on any diagram I looked at.

Number 1:
It's just above the wastegate for the rear turbo and looks like another wastegate. Should I just cap the ends for this or does the EGR eliminator kit remove this part?




Number 2:
This one is attached to the coolant overflow bottle. Several vac hoses were attached and I just need to know if this part is safe to remove or should I just cap the ends.



Thanks in advance!

The first one is the EGR valve, you will need block off plates.

The second one is the charcoal canister I believe.

First one is the egr valve which will be removed with egr eliminator kit.
Second, not sure what you are refering to, perhaps the clutch booster? Or something for charcoal canister.

Yes, EGR valve, you need block off plates.

Second should indeed be charcoal canister, you can delete it, just route your vent line somewhere so you dont smell gas.

I can't quite tell what the reference point is in the 2nd pic either but I think it's the purge control valve and not the canister. They both are bolted to the same bracket asm. I believe.

Instead of starting a new thread I figured I would update this one. Apparently I waited too long to finish the vac reduction and now I can't figure out this last part. Photobucket is down but hopefully I can give a detailed enough description to make some sense.

I'm looking at the intake portion going into the front turbo and there is about a 1/2 nipple that I can't seem to find the hose that goes to it or is this something I can just cap? Or do I tie that into the other end of my MBC? I feel like a tard with this.

The big nipple on the front preturbo pipe goes to rear valve cover. Part of pcv system.
