I guess, the one with that rectangular piece, mine is all cracked, this is actually a pic of jr haile's engine compartment as I don't have a pic of mine, but the underside of the round section of that pipe is cracked completely and a big hole is exposed, so it does nothing...
it is necessary. If you don't fix it it may cause damage to your alternator.
Hardly. Mine was torn to shreads on the bottom of it (airflow was probably about 20%, if that). I drove with this for over 30,000 miles with it like this (as far as I know, previous owner might have driven it more). The only reason I replaced it was for show. And trust me, with all the electronics in my car, my alternator is still working fine. haha
