Default engine cover

has anyone noticed any adverse conditions from removing the cover. Also is it of any advantage to removing the cover besides for performance? I would like a response asap. I am going to get the my SSEi ready for the Pontiac show on the 12th.

The only reason its there is to cover the engine for aesthetics as well as muffle some of the valvetrain noise.

also to cover the vacuum lines and prevent them from breaking. I tried doing a tune up on my 93 and broke a line becasue the cover wasnt on and i was on top of the motor to reach the back part

I think the reason it broke was because it was a 93. Old and brittle the vacuum lines become.
