If your looking for more HP you'll need more than just a cone filter. An overdrive crank pulley,oversize intercooler and related hoses,Mod the MAF,Mod the TB for starters. Hope you have lots of money.

Yes, some people have removed the screen to increase the air flow along with increasing the TB size via a good machine shop. If you remove the screen your taking a chance on blowing the motor if something gets in the air intake.
