They go in to the lower intake manifold. Welding them shut does nothing for performance. It also doesn't really make it whine louder. What you do get is a whine at idle and driving that kind of sounds like a power steering pump that '* making noise.

You don't NEED pushrods, but it'* a good idea to get the oil restricted. Those jack up the pressure in the lifters. Springs ya, I recommend them. No larger then #105.
