    what's the difference in doing the deck plate mod vs. just leaving the air filter access door open????....other than the air filter may slip open from it's snug fit....

    Just like you said...your leaving your filter open to the possibility of working itself loose and allowing unfiltered air into your intake.

    I bought a spring from lowes and put it so that the filter is sealed. Its a 75 cent mod. No hole in my box!
