I have a 99' chevy 1500 with a vortec 350. It has a throttle bodie spacer, Airaid intake system and flowmaster exhaust. My question is does the box connected to the stock inlet tube serve a pupose its the one with vortec written on it. I was wondering if I blocked it off from the rest of the intake if it would help in gaining more horse power. I guess it couldn't hurt anything but I wanted to know if anyone else has tried anything with this set up? thanks in advance.
