Default DE-turbo question

long story short my turbo hic-uped. im going to deturbo (put the car back to Naturally Asspirated). All it has in the way of turbo parts is a "msd boost controler" (there's a vacume line running in from the TB and wires running out to the distributer) and a fuel pressure regulator, i dont think the cam timing has been messed with. what if anything do i need to do to get the car running strong as a nat. ***. (apart from changing the exhaust manifold)?

Go back to stock heat spark plugs. Crank the timing back up to 14* and run premium fuel.

It won't advance timing unless your in boost. But it is easy to remove. Just disconnect all the wires and i think there's one you have to reconnect and cap the vac line.

I guess I fell into that one. It only retards timing (under boost).
