Default What can be removed from the engine bay when running a stand-alone ECU?

I'm running an Adaptronic system on my new built engine and while I wait for the machine shop I'd like to know what can be removed from the engine bay to clean things up. I've done some searching but I'd like to compile these items into one thread that could possibly be sticky worthy.

I've already removed and blocked my EGR tube.

After a quick search I'll be removing:
  • Charcoal Canister + brackets
  • Relocate the overflow tank
  • Emissions sensors and vac lines

Anything else I should add to this list? I'll allocate everything to the first post to make it an easy resource so chime in if you've got a suggestion.

The crank case vents can be run to a catch can and vented to atmosphere.
