I think the 4 restrictors that your looking at are the peices you put together to make the exhaust gas restrictors, they come in a little manila envelope in the kit, the peices sandwich together and theres these little tabs that come out of the hole you bend over to keep it together.

I think the resrictors come into play more when you have stock exhaust and the engine spends alot of time idleing in a hot inviroment.

If your running headers then the exhsaut gas deverter valve is long gone and there anint much gas traveling across the intake and you could probly leave them out all together.
