The tuba hole is right behind the radiator and you don't want hot air in the airbox. I superglued some plastic in there to stop the airflow. I guess duct tape would do the same thing.

Your major concern is really the hole behind the radiator(where the tuba was) The other holes will allow air in but you aren't getting a steady flow of hot air from them. Basically the main things to remove are the resonator and the tray in the airbox. These two modifications will allow alot more air, the rest of the holes are not as big of a concern.

As long as the tray and the resonator are gone you should retain the same sound.

well, if the 2.0 is the same as the 2.3, as you're looking at your airbox, the side facing the front of the car will have a bent plastic tuba coming out of the side and then up. now you pull like a sob and you'll have a hole on the side. now the problem with this hole is that it is inches away from the radiator, so it heatsoaks like a mother f'er. so you take duct tape and cover this hole up so you only have the hole on the right side (flapper) and on the bottom where you pulled out the resonator (big black box). these two will more than compensate for the tuba hole being covered, plus you can't beat the sound!
