Is it worth removing the piece of pipe in the top half of the EF airbox lid to alow more air in. Also has anyone modified the air box by cutting a hole in the bottom half and then through the metal under the airbox and running a piece of 4 inch PVC pipe into the brake duct air inlet at the front. I already have the Tickford Snorkel on it.

That piece of pipe is what makes the EF airbox one of the highest flowing airboxes around, so don't remove it.

Yes people have cut holes in the bottom and drawn air from the brake duct spot you speak of.

I saw a test on 20 odd airboxes, and the EF was pick of the bunch, with a standard filter.
