Thats up to you, the drilling of holes in the airbox result in a change in sound but not much - you really need to dril a lot of holes - I am talking from experience - got 139 holes (7mm in diameter) in mine dont ask me how I accomplished it to drill that many holes but one thing is for sure I've got almost no airbox left and it is all in vein did not gain an inch of noticeble power.

My personal opinion if I new what I do now I never would have done it.

It is your call - by the way drilling holes into the airbox will also result in sucking hot air from the enjin bay.

Get a cold air intake like kens or mine. Kens is cheaper than the K&N anyway.
