Default Functional Air Scoop

Has anyone modified the stock air box by cutting holes on it to breath through the center air scoop? (99-01 RS.) Is there any significant gain noticed by doing so? I'm thinking of doing this on my 00 RS but I'm not sure if its worth the trouble.

One word..."hydrolock"....I believe you would have serious problems with water getting into your TB and f**king up your car. Some people have mounted a cone filter directly under the scoop, right off the TB, but they keep their filters oiled properly.

As far as I know no one has done that. All though many have toyed with the idea of a RAM AIR type of thing, but I believe most people will agree with the fact that you will get better performance gains with a production cold air intake.

I cut out a square hole on top of the air box. I haven't driven it in heavy rain except once, but it was fine. The hole doesn't really come close to the hoodscoop opening. It sits about 4 inches back, so I don't see a big problem with water getting in there. The gains were minimal but the sound changed alot! If I were to seal the opening with the hoodscoop I would expect it to improve but then I'd be setting myself up for water trouble.
