Removing the octopus:

1 - allows you to adjust the pilot screw jetting ACCURATELY.

2 - Removes the potential to pull out (excessive number of) vacuum lines reducing the chance of allowing dirt/water to sucked DIRECTLY into the intake of your engine.

3 - GREATLY cleans up the visual mess at your carb.
