Power Steering
Fuse box can be moved into the cabin, possibly behind the glove box.
Windshield washer fluid can be removed/moved
Coolant overflow can be moved into the bumper/other locations...
You can get rid of the charcoal canister, but I wouldn't.
The rest is mostly wires, so a wiretuck would be good in this case.

I have seen people moved the washer fluid to the cowl area, then cover it all with aluminum or black cover.

^Nothing really, its just there is no gain in removing the canister other than weight savings. Its pretty much the only emissions device that doesn't rob you of some power, and the benefits are you don't dump gas vapors. Either way, you remove it for sure, but its not going to do anything other than shave some weight and make the car smell like gas.

its got some kind of valve that controls it. Runs off the MAP sensor, which also does some EGR control I think.

Hey forgot to mention when I open the gas cap there seems to be a good amount of positive pressure in the tank.
