Side Gill Lid

So we all know the side gills are fake but what I found when I was changing to the edition black chrome gills are that the gills have a cover. That cover basically blocks the gill for being a vent and when it is removed I guess it would somewhat work. Are there anything bad if it is removed? I felt the inside air when the gill was removed and it was warm/hot and I could see some light in there which means air from the engine or bottom of the car must reach there. If there isnt a downside why arent people doing it? I did a quit search and found nothing. If there is a previous thread please post it so I can read it and I dont care if this is the 100th time its ask...
