Glad the diagrams helped. Tim brings up a good point, which I didn't mention above but was referenced in the link to my original post at the bottom of the diagrams.

In addition to removing the vacuum switch, disconnecting the lines and capping the ports (by the way, the caps are shown in red in my diagram), I also did disable the temperature compensator as Tim mentioned. Additionally, I did remove the bypass valves and cut/install a full face gasket for each to ensure that they were truly disabled. I should have mentioned that above.

I have to say: this is the first time I've ever heard of someone removing their Dellortos and replacing them with Strombergs. Usually it's the other way around. I'd love to replace my Strombergs with Dellortos, but it just doesn't make financial sense for me for the way I drive the car. If in the future I end up with some disposable income that I just can't find a use for, a set of Dellortos would be high on the list (along with a stroker kit).
