Really up to you on this. I left the elbow in with the silencer hacked off so it is open to the wheel well. That way the only air that gets to the air filter never goes past the hot engine first.....

Check my journal link below. I ran the elbow with the bottom closed for a few days before I opened it up. I don't think there is a difference.....nothing I could feel. Sounds better open and with a flat panel filter (I used K&N). Plus, in my mind, open to the wheel well makes it act more like a CAI....

When I took out my intake silencer I left it open with no elbow, I had no problems.
