Installed Superspint Exhaust & Vacuum Tube???

I just installed the SS exhaust w/ twin 80mm straight tips. My question is this: what do I do w/ the vacuum tube that connects to the flap mechanism on the stock exhaust's right tip? Do I seal it or just let it hang there? What happens if it's not sealed if it's suppose to be sealed? Just wondering... Please help. Thanks!

Your best option is to seal it. Although not sealing it will most likely not cause any severe problems, if it happens to suck up some dirt or a small rodent, it may prove difficult to get the stock exhaust hooked back up later. Take a good-sized screw and screw it into the end of the tube, that will take care of the plugging needed.
