Hahahaha i love the picture.

While the sound is kinda neat... I personally don't think its worth the hit to longevity for sound gains alone... good luck...

I mean, it already comes with a cone style filter so you can just pop the top or swiss-cheese the box for more airflow.

Doesn't have to be just a K&N filter.
