Muzzy Block Off Plates, Should You Use Them?

When disconnecting the Kleen air system should you just do the basic removal mod or remove everything and install block off plates?
Or does it make a difference either way?

I disconnected my Klean crap and plugged the hoses. Some time later (a few months) I got around to installing the Muzzy block offs. I noticed no difference other than the warm feeling in my heart of having milled billet rather than plugged rubber tubes and zip ties.

Cheaper route to go..... Connect Kleen air to crankcase vent.... And maybe gain a pony or two with the negative crankcase pressure.... My cost was like 5 bucks to do...

Bought a new medical alert bracelet. Says "Probably just shitfaced"

What Rich said, it's the easiest and more profitable route. Besides, who sees the Muzzy block off plates anyway??

I concur with Richard, Psycho, and BAMTed. 8) The cc vacuum mod is in place on my 12 as well.

I hate stupid people.
