    I can envision it but I couldn't tell you what it does... Maybe something to do with the fuel or brake system?

    Its a charcoal canister, don't realy need it unless you have emissions where you live. easiest thing to do would be to find a way to hook up your engine to the stock canister

    Emissions, it's the Evaporative Emissions Control Canister. It is for tempoerary storage of fuel vapor until it can be purged in the engine and burn.

    I've never seen them not be compatible, make sure you are running the lines to the right spots, Use the ones from the canister in you car.

    as stated, use your stock canister and run the lines to the engine. I ran into the same prob about the stock lines being to small to fit onto the GSR "nipple" connectors....I torched a screwdriver, stuck the hose on and it widened....the quickly connected it....worked for me
