The main issue with the tube into the filterbox seems to be noise and whether it draws hotter (less dense) air or colder (more dense) air. That's my understanding. Others?
I thought I read that the length of the tube LEAVING the box can effect where intake air wave lengths meet. Essentially an engineered way to "tune" an intake. Welp, I think I'll give it a shot. Just have to tell my friend that he needs to agree to give me my **** back if I see adverse effects on FE :-D
