If Im not mistaken that takes some work to fix. You can drive it with it like that. Basically you wont have as good a 'pull' from the engine at low end as you should since it's stuck open..probably on both sides of the intake. Unless you like to race people I would let it go. IF that's what I think it is from reading online.

Like Daehawk said, unless you race......... or live up a really steep mountain, save your money. Not that big of a deal. At least it's stuck OPEN lol.
