    My assumption is that the choices that were made in that post were to do the absolute minimum to effect the change, or to keep it looking as "stock" as possible to avoid conflict with the dealer's service dept. Oetiker clamps can be a bear to remove, especially if you don't have a decent tool to do the job handy, so it was probably easier just to cut those hose than try to remove the clamps.

    The moral of the story, however, is that as long as you plug the vacuum port to the intake and also either remove the breather valve entirely or modify it to prevent it from jamming and causing vacuum-lock in your fuel tank, the exact specifics of how you accomplish it aren't that important. That was just one example of how to tackle it.

    Per Jason above, there are many ways to tackle this. You can do it your way if you'd like. For those who want a "no fuel smell", you can do it Godfrey's way. If you want to remove the whole system, you can, just run the tank breather line to the ground, and plug the intake (a rubber vacuum cap will not suffice).

    To look as stock as possible, simply remove the valve spring that is in the tank cap.
    Only three screws under the cap to access and no more pressure problem leaving the entire valve and pipe system.
