Icon2 Does this do anything? Removing inline resonator for intake. (pic)

Saw this somewhere and was wondering if this actually does anything?

I always wondered what that extra plastic sack was next to the intake by the engine but wondering if anyone has removed it?

Seems like doing this above would increase noise?

Attached picture below.

Thanks,

I know they are there to increase volumetric efficiency. I've read somewhere before removing it won't cause any noticeable changes in driveability.

I ended up removing them a couple months ago and putting those plugs in above. No noticeable difference at all and cleans up the engine bay nicely.
