Relocating coolant tank + aluminum + delete some ports?

I put in a pair of Bilstein 7100's in with RTE adjustable shock towers and needed the extra length so that the coolant bottle can no longer sit in its factory spot. All good, I've deleted SAI now that I live in Nevada. So I can put the coolant tank against the firewall. I have a friend who will weld me an aluminum tank and I was wondering if I need to bother with the radiator bleed tube or the intake/TB heater circuit? TB is already deleted and that hose currently routes directly from intake to bottle.


Thanks for any advice/tips!
