ya i did it on my 2000. You will need an 1/8 inch pipe plug. BRASS. A steel plug wont get along with the aluminum housing. First you take off the rubber hose. Then you take the fitting out of the compressor housing. I think its a 7/16 wrench. Then you should wrap your plug in teflon tape. Then put the plug in the hole. Im not shure on the wrench size it depends on the plug type. Then i also pluged the wastegate rubber line. I just didnt want to destroy it with water or dirt incase I need it later. Good luck.
01, has a metal line, doesn't have rubber line. Use a j-hook, it keeps the gate from opening, and is good for 10psi more boost. But boost wont help unless there is fuel to go along with it.
