You ever hear the sound of a Carter 625 4bbl atop a Shelby medium riser on a 302? If it had a silencer, you wouldn't.
All it does is keep you from hearing the in-rush of air by having baffles and ported chambers(Helmholtz resonators) in the flow path.
Remove silencer, and silence is removed. Now, if a tree falls in the forest...
