When the engine is off and the anti-perc fan kicks in, the valve will open to allow cool air to be blown into the boost hose and cool the air at the top of the carb.

To run without it, all you will need to do is remove the valve and use a suitable blank/bung to block the hose up. And you may as well remove the rest of the system while you're there.
There will be no running difference as it's only part of the anti-perc fan system, which operates when the car is switched off.

thank you very much, you made me this look easy...

i'll try the 19 16V's one, but if it doesn't fit, i'll run the car w/o it
