    Won't sound much different (I'm assuming you've also done the usual airbox mods too?), but drilling the airbox is a no-no...derestrict and change to the Vectra intake pipe instead unless you already have!

    Hmm...can't say mine is much louder than OEM with a K&N and the mods, but no worries on the whole heat soak issue which is why I am not keen on the induction kits/cone designs.
