Wanted to know if I can just do a straight tube connection. I am fabricating an engine cover. What does it do anyway? Any advise is highly appreciated.

Oh I see. SO is this statement true?

The intake resonator is used for noise reasons, and also to tune the intake.
The high frequency pulse that is created when the intake valve closes is used by the resonator to created a pressure wave that helps filling the next cylinder better.

People do it all the time. It changes the noise. Be prepared for that, or test it first.
