Default Intake vacuum question...

What do the 2 vacuum lines on the air filter box control if anything? I was thinking about removing the box and putting a cone filter on and just ditching the rest but I dont want to screw anything up.

Inside the air box is a sensor (it is controlled by outside air temp), that opens and closes to allow vacuum to pass from one line to the other. I believe on my 86 2.9, it controlled the EGR in some way.
