The bar your referring to is actually there as a blow-back stop for the metering plate and
the black piece you referred to is actually rubber. If the engine were to backfire through the
intake plumbing the metering plate could be pushed up violently and could damage or move
out of adjustment the air plate pivot arm. The rubber bumper is there to stop and/or cushion
the metering plate and pivot arm.

I considered adding something to the bottom of the divider that is installed inside the stack but
also knew the factory versions had none. My greatest concern was adding something that might
break off or come loose and blow through the turbo.
