    hood block off plate and baffles (help)

    ok so I got an issue here and I was hoping someone could help me out.

    So I was hooking up my knight rider led lights in my nostrils (which looks really cool by the way) and I dropped out all the rivots for the block off plate and baffles. Only problem is the way I mounted the lights to the back, I cannot get the block off plate or baffels re-installed.

    Can I do any damage by leaving them out. Would I be running the motor lean? I recall a thread saying you can get water in the intake.

    If I gotta do it all over again I guess I will, but I just do not want to do any damage to my car.

    They are rain baffles. I removed mine and installed a JAAM ram air kit and in very very heavy rain at hiway speeds, my air filter gets wet. The duct has been dry several times I checked it so I don't think water is getting past the filter. I think you're ok.

    you can't reinstall the baffles. They're glued in and rivoted. The free ram air mod is more like a permenant mod. I suppose you could try jb welding it back in there. And yes, it does work. It wont show much gains on a dyno because there's not much air flow, but you'll feel it pull just a bit more on the street/ highway. hence the term. "ram" air.

    leave them out, u dont need them at all. removing them helps with delivering alot more air to the air box. this means mo hp's!
