Getting rid of the 52 vacuum lines is a great way to destroy the engine, the CVCC engine doesn't have the spark plug in the normal combustion chamber, it's in a little "pre-chamber" that is fed by the 3rd barrel on the carb, it also tends to have an o2 sensor that controls the carb via vacuum lines, it has deceleration fuel cut off that is controlled via vacuum lines, it has a factory warm air intake that is controlled via vacuum lines, there is not a single vacuum line that I can think of that does not help it get better mileage, help it run better or help keep it from running lean and damaging the engine and in the 3 cars with CVCC engines that I've owned, I only found one vacuum line issue and that was caused by me messing around with them
