Isn't what you are proposing to make the same thing as the bottom of the airbox?

As I still haven't fitted any ICE to my 750, I decided to remove the lower half of the airboxes and simply Duck tape the filter to the top half.
Below 3000rpm it's as quiet as normal, but pop it in Sport mode, floor it, and it howls like an Aston Martin right up to the redline.
Must make some heat-shielding and proper cold air ducting though. It' s well hot under the bonnet.
