It aint gonna hurt nothin. I like to leave stuff as stock as possible, so i left it in mine.. But if you want it to be crazy loud, get a smooth metal intake tube like an afe and a cone filter or something like a big honkin air filter that the website owner has on his diy site here, then pull that silencer ring. i rode in one with that setup and it was deafening.

The 2nd gens are louder than the 3rd gens based on the air filter location in proximity to the firewall. But I removed mine and its noticeable, but not loud and I am not sure its enough noise the wife even noticed I did anything. Also stock intakes will make less whistle than aftermarket ones based on the tubing and filter design. But its fun to hear when you pull some boost.

BHAF and straight pipe exhaust will make it fairly loud... But now leave the ring in with both and it still can be heard but just not loud...

Yeah, my buddies 02 with a S&B and his ring in place is about the same, maybe a little louder, than mine without a ring, and the intake baffles replaced with an Airaid MIT. He was talking about pulling the ring, but he is currently on a week long trip to Glacier from Boise, I am guessing the ring stays in after a 8 hour drive.
