Airbox question any replies would be appreciated

Im sure this has been asked many times but im new to the forums.

Am I loosing or gaining power by eliminating the top of the airbox?
Any suggestions to modifing the airbox? is it even necessary?

Stock air-box is a great design, no power to be made by eliminating/modifying it!
