The box is mainly there to keep the intake noise down. It's basically hollowed out inside & has baffles and little corridors for the air to flow around in. This box is also restrictive to the airflow going into the throttle body. If you remove you'll have to relocate the IAT sensor to the new intake tubing. There's a lot of good threads on here about DIY intakes, and there are aftermarket options as well. I personally run an Airaid Modular Intake Tube going from the Throttle Body into the Factory Airbox with a K&N drop in filter. This way, I got rid of the resonator box on top of the motor, and had a pre-drilled location to move the IAT sensor. Also, the sound & performance is more aggressive, but it still doesn't have the ROAR that a cone filter setup provides.

Hope that helps you out!
