removing air silencer?

ok so ive read some posts about this already, but just needed to ask anyway. im planning on doing a full h/c/i swap. im also gona have a 65mm halfshafted throttle body. i have a k&n high flow filter. i read in the newest mmff mag that removing the air silencer on a 5.0 gained almost 100 cfm. would it benefit me at this point to remove the silencer? it couldnt hurt since im getting more air into the intake right?

It can't hurt and adding a K&N filter while you are at it.

We'll yank it off tomorrow when you get here for the cookout. It is useless and just kills the power to weight ratio.
