Its fine altho it may make the air travel to the intake a little more less diret - why would you wish to remove it permanently? :idea:

mine wasnt on my car for 3 or 4 months i lost it and then found it again lol, i never had any problems, theres nothing down there that needs to be protected, it may help airflow keeping it on though.

What is the reason for taking it off, if u have no reason to take it off i say leave it on there

I took that out the other day , and was wondering what it did, but it seems to hold the ford grill in for me, if i took that plastic part out the grill has no where to attach to.

i might be wrong.
