Default Positioning of the Vapor canister

Hi
To fit my K&N in a cooler area under the hood , want to relocate my can at the location behind the current positioning of the conical filter.(please see pic).I wanted to know to from the gurus here whether relocating the canister from the orginal position to a different one will have any adverse affect on the car.
Also am not sure what the canister is used for? I had the conical fitted from Automech and they were in a way suggested that i could remove the can but i didn't go with that.
So,BHPians please suggest

thanks

Hi Sumeet, do you mean the EVAP canister ? The EVAP canister is part of the evaporative emissions control system & basically uses activated charcoal to absorb fuel vapors.

Relocating the canister shouldn't be an issue, but do you have the space ?

Hi srini
If you see the pic i am actually talking about the black can to left of the engine bay.I was thinking of relocating it to the some other place
so that i route the air intake pipe as my current setup allows the filter to suck in hot air from the exhaust fan thus defeating the purpose of the
intake itslef.
I was wondering if i located it to some other place whether it will cause any issue due changes in the length of the pipe etc.As for space
i guess i will have to get it fixed at the back next to the engine light
thanks

You can fix it anywhere. The pipe lengths do not matter in this case. You can even completely remove it. Should not make any difference to the performance of your car.
