" I understand your statment just based on what other TUNERS do, it doesn't make sense."
Sure it does, the tuners still have some sort of 'straight tube' leading to the HFM even if it is only a few inches long to try to get the airflow smoother. Why does the Jim C. intake have a shield? It isn't just for heat, it is also to get rid of fan wash which drives the HFM nuts.
All the air in the world doesn't do a thing positive for you if you don't also have the proper amount fuel. If your HFM doesn't properly meter the air you won't get the fuel and you are going to have problems.
If you can try it without screwing up the ability to reverse the mod go for it. My guess is the car is going to run lousy though.
