    I have an 84 diesel blazer on the intake before the aircleaner tharer is this import fart pipe looking thing that I can only assume is an air baffle to reduce noise. It looks quite restrictive with the hard mounted fan blades inside. Can I remove this thing w/o anything blowing up?

    Yep, take that thing off /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif and throw it away. It's supposed to reduce noise, as you've figured out. But it doesn't really sound any louder without it. Run you a 4" hose from the radiator support to the air cleaner, and you'll be in good shape.
