This was one of the original modifications done when the Great Intake Faceoff was occurring on the LXForums several years ago.
The principles still hold true, as this allows fresh air to fill the driver side lower fender area.
To see pictures of the actual removed part, go to the bottom of page 4 of the AEM intake installation instructions below.
Here is a list of things done along with the original test link:
1. Intake 'silencer' has been removed
2. Inner plastic baffle on drivers side next to radiator has been removed to allow direct air flow to intake area (the small triangular one on the bottom).
3. Master cylinder cover has been removed. Hand-over-the-hood-opening test says it vents heat well (thermometer tests coming).
Also, here is further reference to heat related modifications that resulted from a lot of user-based tests.
