Question Will the impeller clearance mod damage my plastic chute?

I have some mud flap cut up and am ready to mount it on the impellers but I am a bit worried now because Iíve been told that the additional velocity could break the plastic chute.

The chute goes nearly straight up so I donít really see where the additional velocity could hurt aside from the little hinged end that you can angle up and down. Maybe that part could be pushed from the angled position back to the straight position if you had it down but even then I canít see it breaking the hinge.

Is this anything I need to be concerned with? If so what is my best option for modification or replacement?
