Default Flapper Mod?!? To do or not to do?

Hey guys, I just wanted to see how many of you all have done the flapper mod to your 08 or 09. I know there are a lot of threads out there but I wanted to get an updated consensus on how everyone who has done this feels.

Was it worth it or not? And if you did do it, what all did you remove? I don't know whether I want to remove all the extra stuff on the ducts or not.

Thanks in advance Guys.

It was certainly worth it on the 04-07, I would think it would be the same (albeit more work) on the new ones.

i did it to my 08-no real difference thats noticeable but its a little louder now
i removed the flapper and spring but left the vacuum actuator in place to keep the hole in the air duct sealed-i removed the vacuum canister by the headlites and capped off the vac line from the engine-left the elect solenoids plugged in
