    Water intake washer question

    When you remove the pump you notice a washer incased in a yellow rubber gasket. At least that is the colour on an 04. It actually resides within the pump support but always sticks to the pump when you remove it. See the pic below.
    My question is why is the inner diameter of this washer so small, and why not remove the washer so that it is the same diameter as the water intake tube? Or is this restricted on purpose to control the amount of water/flow going into the IC? Would this be worth removing or more specifically replaced with a washer that has a wider inner diameter for anaftermarket IC. Not sure if it would result inmore efficient flow or not but just a thought.
