Do you just plug the hole on the end, where the actuvator arm is or do you plug all the holes where the shaft does thru?

Im running an auto and for some reason it seems to want to run alot around 3k cruising and shifting i guess for gas milage.

I feel for my car it was better with the flaps in there.

I dont want to put it back because i did ALOT of work on the flapless intake but i just prefer it how it was with an auto tranny
My car feels a lot smoother running w/ the flaps opened. So I'm going to either get an escape manifold or plug the holes on the stock one. Say Ronnie did you just plug the hole on the end where the actuvator arm is, or do you plug all the holes where the shaft goes thru?
