There is a thread about this on here somewhere. From memory (could be wrong) I think someone from here might have even been making them or something very similar.

I remember there was some discussion re the thickness and design of the lid and the potential for distortion and hence a risk of leakage.

There was a thread regarding hi flow billet lids that fit the oem filter box. Fair bit of end was done on them even to the extent of having the flow measured. Few people spoke about making new boxes but Came to the conclusion that it would quite hard with the plumbing as the maf still needs to be inline.

Cheers

They look nice and everything, and I reckon the concept of getting more air in a good thing of course - but does the factory airbox really need an upgrade? can you modify your vehicle enough that factory airbox restriction becomes a limiting factor?

Not sure about the 3.0 but the 4.2 definitely notices a higher flow air lid, better response down low and slightly lower egts.
