I did it and I have felt no decrease. Of course, at the same time I had a tune installed. As a matter of fact, my wife got 500 miles out of the last tank of fuel that came up to an average of around 28 mpg. A personal best for our wk!

I should clarify that I had it deleted via software. The flaps are still there, they are just permanently in the open position. There are no trouble codes.

fishinbama: Could you provide us more details of the delete? Is it included in the tune? Where you get the tune from?
