    it warms the itnake air in the winter.

    if you live down south you can remove it no harm done... if you live in a cold climate, i suggest you leave it on

    maybe a little, when I say a little that means .001 whp. The air going into your intake chambers is a little cooler since your TB is a little cooler.

    that in combination with the hondata intake manifold gasket will lower your intake air temps.
