RIP Edwin

Default instead of silencer delete, why not try silencer mod?

I've been reading the millions and millions of threads that are all over the bigname scooby forums and wondering why everyone is trashing the silencer and buying pvc pipes. Why not just keep the snorkel and cut the top off the silencer and patch it up with some fiberglass so it's basically an elbow that goes straight into the air filter?
This falls under the "free mods" so I'm wondering why people are shelling out $40 for pvc that hangs in the fender rather than $10 for fiberglass and still utilizing the stock pieces.
Is there a reason this hasn't been done or did I miss something?

Personally, I'd rather take the snorkel out in one piece in case I ever need to put it back.
