I took out my snorkel and am thinking about cutting the flaps. I was initially going to take out that whole assembly with the flaps, but am thinking that you could potentially be decreasing air flow by taking it out.

That is, that assembly blocks off three sides and has the flaps at the top, so air can get into the intake. When the grille shutters close, that forces air to go up through the flaps. Without the assembly in place and the other three sides being blocked, air will just go all around the shutters instead of being redirected to the top flaps and into the intake.

So I was looking at how much a replacement assembly would cost if I ever had to replace mine when I cut the flaps. Tried looking around Ford parts, but couldn't find it. Can anyone find it on Ford Parts and let us know how much it costs?
