You can, but i wouldnt as:
1) sucking hot air, actually loosing power
2) can pop filter off sucking unfiltered air, potenntially f**k your motor

It sounds better with the lid off cause you get a louder induction noise but not good for your car.

Isnt there also legalities with an open airbox if it was fitted closed from factory? Anyways as all others have said you loose the cold air induction.

A copper packing up an RBT zone in QLD said it to me once, "undue induction noise" .

Never seen anything in print about it though.
