    It's just a filter for emissions when you shut the truck off. Most of us remove it. It won't hurt anything at all by removing it.

    Except for you chances of passing a smog check. If the Tech notices it’s gone he can fail you I believe. It’s considered a modified emissions device.

    That being said I would remove it.


    EDIT: At least this is the case in CA
