Yes, the shroud is removed because the electric fan has an integral shroud.

Let’s call the area covered by the stock shroud X and the area covered by the fan’s integral shroud Y. Air can’t pass from X to Y because of the electric fan’s integral shroud, so I don’t see how shrouding X accomplishes anything. The air caught by that shroud can’t be funnelled into the fan, so it’ll just stagnate there.

Does that make sense? Am I wrong?

The fan is pulling. There was no restrictor in the bypass hose before, so there still isn’t.

Off to take a test drive with no fan now...
