Josh , The general idea is to get the best reading of the ambient air temperature possible. Sensing as little as possible of the engine heat the better off you are.
Also remember engines run better on cool dense air... sooo drilling holes is the air box is not a good thing - you can pick up warm air from the engine.
Hope this helps! HTCA

Instead of cutting the snorkel down I drilled about a dozen holes in it like swiss cheese. So I was able to fish the sensor into one of the holes and zip tie it up near the front of the snorkel opening. I'm thinking that would be pretty good.
