Rip out the ICV and clean it up for some good preventative maintenance.

I always like having something to tinker with.... :-s

I don't think they were removed. It looks like it came that way from the factory. I would imagine that they wouldn't have a CDV on a 330 ZHP (6spd).

you can only access the CDV from underneath the driver side of the car its pretty easy actually you just need to make sure that you have something to clamp the hose with in order to prevent a huge mess and some sort of bleeder kit to bleed the system after =D

My old ZHP (07/2003 build) had a CDV.
