Intake manifold gasket

I pulled of the intake today from my engine and noticed that a part of the gasket was ripped off you can see on the picture.
The middle "string" is gone.
Its first time that i noticed that in the blower intake the ports are not separated..
So there's no pressure to the "middle string" of the gasket...
And that shouldn't be good in my mind because then you have a constant leak between two ports... or maybe not?!?! Because there�s non separating wall...
Well i hope someone have some input..
Its a weiand 144 intake and world products sportsman II heads

Well,, if my eyes serve me right the manifold`s port is open and if it`s open why would it need a seal inbetween the ports? a 4.3 chevy V6 is designed this exact same way. It appears someone used standard intake gaskets and cut the center sections out which was a good idea as there was nothing to hold them in place which is a open invatation for them to go into a cylinder and cause all kinds of havoc

The blower manifold is just a large open tub. Because the intake charge is pressurized most of the time. The need for runners is less of a factor.

I would trim away the gasket divider and run the manifold that way.
