If you're not riding mud or water, don't bother drilling holes in the airbox, just take the lid off. As for the pipe, if the OEM YZ pipe fits then you should just use that. Why bother drilling or modifying things if you don't have to?

Keep in mind that the extra exhaust flow will probably require you to re-jet.

Don't drill the air box. If it has the WR airbox, remove the "lid". If it's a YZ air box, it has no lid.

The WR pipe can be improved by removing the serviceable baffle section. The YZ pipe will perform somewhat better, but it will be louder.
