The snorkel is a harmonic dampener that quiets the turbulent air entering the intake. Removing that will give you a bit of a whooshing sound. They did the same thing to the intake on the old fox body mustangs and that is always the first thing we pulled out of them to get the extra airflow.

Contrary to popular misconceptions, you won't actually gain any power by removing it.

But everyone is right when they say it changes the sound. I've done this to a few vehicles in the past (more out of boredom than expecting any gains) and you definitely get a more "throaty" sound out of the engine. Nothing drastic, but noticeable. And the colder the weather, the better it sounds.
