The pins inside the lock cylinder. It will make it so the lock never locks again, but will appear to be operational from the outside. If you're concerned about security it probably isn't a great idea.

You only need to disconnect the vac lines from the trunk actuator. I need the controller for my 84SD and the lock works fine with the key. There was a part change between early 84 and 85.

wouldn't this just make it so anything can be used to unlock the trunk?
you would still have to turn it to unlock the trunk. this only modifies the implement needed...

In addition to disconnecting the vacuum lines, it might also be necessary to manually move the actuator to the UNLOCK position. Securing the actuator in said position would be a good idea.

No. The vacuum mechanism has nothing to do with the lock cylinder. Note that the "button" can be depressed without a key, regardless of the vacuum lock position.
