The difference in modifing the deck itself is considerable. Only removing the plate, while marginally effective, does not provide the same result.

Of course, you will be altering a factory part and for some, that is unacceptable. For the aesthetically stringent there is the flushmount option like mine.

Note to the interested:

If you don't want to actually cut the deck, then the portion of the instructions to remove the seat and deck will still serve you well. You will experience roughly 15% of the benefit w/o deck modification. So choose your path dependent on your taste and happy modding..........
