Fair enough with this mod on a ef/el where the snorkle goes to the bottom of the box and up to the intake.
But when this is done to a ea,eb,ed where the snorkle goes to the top of the box and the bottom goes straight into the throttlebody you'd run the risk of sucking forign objects straight into the engine.
I've removed the plastic that goes behind the indicator the into the guard and I get heaps of rocks up in there. Id hate to have one in my engine...

My airbox on the EF has a big hole cut in the front face, covered with mesh. The stock snorkel has been removed from the top half and I have a pod in there mounted on a 3" 45deg bend. Sound is awesome; throttle response is lightning-fast as I also have many other intake mods. Next on the cards is another intake through the bonnet. If XRFairmont67 ever gets these scoops that he's working on actually finished, I'll connect one to the airbox.
