Help with exhaust y pipe piece

So I am in the process of replacing the y pipe for the exhaust. Of course 3 of the 4 bolts break off but I am trying to figure out what the Attached piece is. It looks like it has a butterfly in it but the spring is shot and it clearly does not work. Any ideas? Is it needed?

I removed the butterfly and welded the holes. Its for warmup, butterfly closed when cold causing back pressure.

The butterfly shaft holes. You could tap the holes a thread a bolt if no welder available, but welding would be best option.

It is an exhaust damper. When cold, it is closed and it forces that sides exhaust through the intake manifold and out the other side of the exhaust. A lot of people just weld them open.

ties into that little metal tube that goes into the bottom of your air cleaner.

My was cracked in half. I removed it. Not a good idea. I twisted my y-pipe and the whole exhaust. Was a horrible pain to get donut to seal.

Definetly suggest putting it back in. With or without butterfly.
