diesel cars use a similar system to heat the incoming air during cold starts (40 deg and under)

it looks like the same kind of idea. i would leave it intact.

IF THE CARB ON THE CAR IS ELECTRIC, MEANING THAT IT HAS 3 PLUGS ON THE FRONT OF THE CARB. THAN YES U NEED IT IN ORDER FOR THE CARB TO WORK CORRECTLY. OR YOU CAN JUST PUT AN ARTER MARKET 2 BARREL CARB LIKE AN EDELBROCK, DO AWAY WITH THE COMPUTER UNDER THE PASSENGER SIDE DASH. I DID THAT TO A 87 REGAL THAT I HAD AND IT RAN BETTER THAT WAY. ;) ;) ;) ;)

why ditch it? if you are running a stock carb and intake, it wont make a difference whether its there or not.
