    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.
