The block-off plate is for the resonator opening, and it is nowhere near lid-off loud if you don't use one. The car has a little bit of growl, but nothing obnoxious. I am personally not a fan of lid-off sound for anything other than wot driving (though I don't knock others' opinions of it). I think I still have my block-off that you can have if you are interested. Just hit me up with a pm if so..

As far as the snorkel delete goes, I read that in your thread and was going to do it after work today
Yes, I probably misunderstood that you've been running lid-off the whole time. If so, you should have a power gain and wouldn't need the snorkel delete for more air as you will already be getting plenty. Should you decide to put your lid back on (which should help you notice the power difference), then I would most definitely recommend doing it.
