    No, too much airflow cant hurt an engine. More dirt may get inside there with holes cut in the body.

    I got Holes for Cooling,Holes for Gas, hole for tuning HSN.....You can never have too much cooling/air flow for filter. Plus I hate takin my body off just to add gas or tune while Bashing/racing.
    If you run in the dirt, you are gonna get DIRTY whether you got Holes or Not!
