AC Delete & Heater Core Replacement

As much as I really really don't want to do this mod, the smell of coolant in the cabin and 95 degree days making the engine want to kill itself seems to force my hand.

Now the question is, from what I've read online, the evap and the heater core are in the same box/area. Can I remove the evap and have no worries after it's out? Or will I need to find a way to brace the heater core?

From what I remember of mine, yes you can.

Its not hard, it just takes time. Give yourself at least a full day to do it and get some more weather stripping to seal everything back up while you're in there
