Holes in the airbox cannot be reversed, unlike an added tube. Cut into the box and you have permanently maimed the vehicle. And the air at the exhaust manifold is more quite a bit hotter than back by the airbox itself.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
