Hey mate, its there for a reason, to protect your engine, if you remove it you will prob allow more air flow, therefore increasing power. But its up to yourself if you want to risk that. Its your call

That restrictor does limit air flow a bit Tag's.
But the car is hard to start and runs rough when cool without it.

Leaving it on and re-curving the distributor and some jetting changes were all that was required to get mine to 145kw however this power was useless for 4wding and I chucked that stuff away and converted to fuel injection instead which only gave about 115kw but made it a better 4wd.

Russel Guest 4wd, Melbourne used to do something for about $400 that apparently gave them a lot more hoot.
