Remove the slam panel for 3-4 weeks, you will feel more responss and grunt from the exhaust.
It takes a couple of weeks for the greater air flow to eventually clear its way through the dpf etc. To reveal a free system

Oh, and dpf?

The slam panel is the plastic panel that sits above the upper grill and helps slam air through the grill on the car.
But due to the design of fords air intake snorkle; it reduices air intake to the snorkle head.

And the dpf is the honycombe filter in your exhaust ßystem that catches the carbon,
Greater mass of air intake
Results in
Greager mass of blow out through the exhaust,
Resulting in the growel but will take a few weeks for full effect.

Sounds like you know your stuff...

How easy is it and what bit do I remove?

Is it there to aid filtration of big objects or anything?

I wouldnt leave it permanently removed due to cosmstic reasons.

Instead
Id locate the snorkle opening on the slam plate and drill a series of holes in a cosmetic friendly formation to both aid induction and look good.

The filter itself blocks all objects and removal of slam panel wont open up the filter housing.
It will open the ammount of air available to the snorkle to be sucked in to the filter.
At worst a leaf or two would get next to your filter inside the housing.
