Check valve to remove the canister?? No.
Not unless you are removing the entire system around it.

Charcoal canister is just 3 12mm bolts and 3 hoses, thats it.

LoL. this obviously isnt getting anywhere. i think the check valve you are talking about is for the gas tank vent line? not sure which one it is though.

Default I'm interested too.

I would be interested to see what the proper way to do this is as well. I have an SVX which has an electric purge valve instead of a check valve. I think the only thing we would need to do is plug the exit from the canister to the manifold. On the SVX there is nothing connected between them, but you should check that. I have not figured out what to do with the gas line from the tank. Right now I have it venting to atmosphere from the engine bay. Not thrilled with that setup. I was thinking of running it to the constant suction of the turbo, but I'm not sure how much vacuum that would create at the gas tank. Was also thinking of running at small tee with a little in line filter before it goes to the turbo. Perhaps that would keep the pressure higher, closer to atmosphere. I've also considered reconnecting it since it is not a performance killer.

So are you guys removing the entire system for good? I know it has something to do with emissions but what are the benefits of removing it?

I think the check valve that you are talking about is what I did to my car. You hook up a check valve to the Purge control Solenoid on the manifold to avoid getting fuel smell inside the car... but you didn't have to remove the charcoal canister.

No, kaos talked about a check valve in the tubing for the canister, at the rear of the car...something about gas vapor escaping

I have installed an aftermarket turbo and parallel engine management. I've also ripped out the old fuel rail and most of the pipes associated with the purge system. I'm not sure it will work correctly anymore. If I knew more about how exactly it works to keep the gas tank properly vented and the fuel vapors purged, I would still use it. But I'm sure it would need to be modified for my application.

Default Purge Control.

I would check the RS vacuum diagram. I have only seen the SVX diagram, but if you plug the line the the fuel tank you run the risk of collapsing the tank under vacuum. I thought about plugging the vent line and installing a vented gas cap. That is up to you. I would really prefer to run the line to a light vacuum on the intake somewhere. Good luck. Too bad no one responded to this post with instructions as to how they did this. I did a number of searches on this site and came up empty.
