    Nothing at all. I've done the same. Not only to look better but reduce under bonnet temps and you can also hear everything a bit more, be it the dump valve or something going wrong lol

    yeah it's actually sound deadening dude :D

    It's easy to remove and looks loads better without! And as mentioned you can hear the induction/spool & dumping noises clearer which is nice :D

    Mine didn't have this on when I bought it and I've had no problems in nearly 2 years. It should help in lowering the iat's when it's removed.
