    Let's say I want to drill holes in my stock S7 airbox until I get something else. Where are those drill holes exactly and what size did you all drill? Anyone have pics?

    The vents are from Home Depot... check the plumbing section. I think I went with 1.5" holes.

    Interesting use of the drain covers GolfGL. I'm sure a few people will mimic your design.

    Those tools are called hole saws. Anybody that does electrical work can pop a couple of holes in plastic.

    If you decide to buy the tool, you'll need the saw, a mandrel to hold the saw and a bit to keep it centered.

    it's getting cooler so I will do this soon. anyone drill more holes than the top ones? my buddy was over and he owns an Audi shop. he showed me how to quickly remove the airbag and said I should drill more holes on the underside too.

    anyone else drill more holes underneath?

    I drilled more or less the same pattern of the RS box in my S6 box.
    Didn't noticed much noise difference under load (but milltek non-res/catless).
