Wow getting lots of comments on this I was just asking because I figured it was to get more air in even though the box is up to the side of the truck. You can only do it before the filter so no harm there as the filter sits on top. now stupid would be cutting holes in the line after the filter.

I can only think he was trying to get some extra air into the system with this HACK JOB I mean "mod". Anyone else see any other purpose for this?
I have cleaned the cuts up so it does look better. I also installed a K&N drop in as well. Cleaned up it doesn't look bad and you only notice it if filter is out or the ox is out so looking at it with hood open you would never know it was there' I do plan on going with a true manufactured CAI eventually

SHawn, if you want to take it a step further...remove the hemi hat, and substitute 4" pvc piping with connectors in it's place...

That mod would be worth 25 horsepower on a Chevy.
