Manifold Restrictor inserts.....

Howdy guys, Well I had a dip***** attack today while installing my intake. Got everything installed and torqued, then I noticed on the work bench my restrictor inserts........

This is a very mild built chevy 350 that will only be used for some weekend crusing around town, so do you think it will hurt anything to leave it this way???

Thanks !

I wouldn't worry about it if it is opened up it will heat up faster for you and if closed/blocked it will just takes alittle longer for the engine to warm up that's all. JMO

You'll like it better without the restrictors. Only time I ever used them is for a drag motor where I wanted to keep the intake relatively cool. Street motors work better without them in my opinion.
