    It shouldn't matter if you leave them off. They just go to eachother and nothing else.

    It could but they don't go anywhere so nothing will happen. It's really just preference.

    Some people are afraid without the hot coolant going to the throttle body that the throttle plate could get stuck by freezing. I have never actually heard of this happening, just people saying it could happen.

    Bullshit, I've never had a problem, and I only drive my car once a week, if that. And it sits outside in the winter...I know, I want to cry.

    I've had my throttle start to freeze up at about -20ish several times. That's without this done. I want to do the mod with a valve to flip back for cold weather use.

    Screw the valves. It takes 10 seconds to hook it back up with the factory hose clamps

    That's doesn't have the same coolness of being able to re-direct the flow while the car is running though.
