    Personally I wouldn't drill holes in the airbox, you'll draw hot air from the engine bay into the the engine, no good for power.

    You could try drilling extra holes in to your air feed pipe though.

    Dilling holes is just for a bit more noise, although it is a nice noise. Will not help power in anyway! Like Monty said. You could end up drawing in hot air. You might aswell have a cone filter if your going to drill holes!

    How not to do it!

    I'm sure the car will only take in so much air! The more you get to it doesn't mean the more it'll take, surely! The air filter will slow things down too! I'm no expert but veccy c pipe (just the one) will be more than sufficient!
