If I remember correctly, the added cone there to take advantage of the high velocity air passing over it. In theory, the cone adds spoiler effect to the metering plate, increasing downforce exerted on the plate to force it further in its travel. In theory.........
I never saw any scientific proof to support this theory, but it sounds good on paper.

btw, that cone is mounted properly. It only covers part of the metering plate.
