Just the duct? Probably won't notice it but they are EXTREMELY necessary so don't leave it off. Basically they allow movement of cooler air into the engine. Air is extremely important for ignition, fuel, etc. Eventually you will likely notice efficiency loss, performance loss, buildup of carbon etc. Get one if you don't have it but you can drive it until you do
