You would be better off changing to a k&n or similar, but if you want to drill make sure you don't drill the wrong side of the filter, the trouble with drilling is you then allow warmer air from the engine bay into the intake therefore actually decreasing performance

Drillings a waste of time it wont make a difference what you could do is an iceman mod you get a cold air hose and remove the whole airbox you draw a circle around the cold air hose end onto the bottom of the box then cut it out with a dremel cutting 2mm inside the circle you marked you fit the cold air hose through this hole and silicone around the external join when dry refit and cable tie loosely the other end of the cold sir hose behind the pass headlight
