They're there to keep the throttle plate from freezing shut on cold days up north...

I live in FL, so there was obviously no need for them, and I bypassed that coolant loop.

Does it freeze where you live???

And I meant freezing open, as in won't close as you're coming to a stop. Bad stuff...

You'll have to keep it.
