Missing the intake duct - i mess up

Hi guys, I installed my DCI few months ago and I recently just realized my car is running without the intake duct. The reason is because the guy at the auto repair shop didn't put it back on after he uninstalled the stock air filter box. And I wasn't aware that the intake induct, which I thought it is just needed for the stock intake, was supposed to be there with the DCI. I had already thrown away the stock air filter box and the intake duct. Although the DCI is running without any problem even without the intake duct, I'm actually curious if the intake duct would cause any effect to the engine in terms of performance and longevity. Do you guys think it is worth for me to order the intake duct and put it back on? By the way, I have the DD V2 vented hood, and the left vent on the hood is actually nearby the DCI area. Would the vent help suck the air into the DCI?
