If you look at the wheel well cover in front of the drivers side front tire, you'll see the openings for the air intake box. Well, if you look through the drivers side fog light hole, you'll see the direct back of the stock intake box which is solid, no holes. What if I were to take out the fog light hole cover and cut a hole in the back of the intake box? Will it work to get more air up into the engine? Or will the air just go in the new hole and out of the stock hole and vice versa?

Do you really want to modify the stock intake? If you cut a hole in it, there's no going back. It could make it harder to get warranty work done on the car in some cases, and it could make it harder to sell the car.

If you wanted to retain the stock intake... I'd just remove the resonator/snorkel portion of it altogether. It'll still be fairly quiet, and you'll get a slight improvement in power. And whenever you need to, you can just reinstall it.
