it would take some skilled fabrication. Not only opening the scoop, but then plumbing the intake pipe so it functions without letting in water. IMO stick with the intake you have and dont bother trying to open the scoop.

Im totally with you Drew-I HATE nonfunctional stuff too-like when Chevy made the "choochoo" El Camino, one of the addons was "nonfunctional" sidepipes....and you saw the functioning SINGLE TAILPIPE hanging out one side fake hodscoops make no sense. HOWEVER-GTO's above post is SO true-you cannot just cut a hole and forget it-you would need a system within that would catch water and deflect/channel it out and away from the engine, while recieving enough air for the intake! IMO NOT worth it!
