Airbox /plenum bypass

Has anyone been brave /daft enough to skip the airbox and plenum to supply air direct to the throttle body? As nothing to the right of the maf is useful I was thinking of butchering the plenum to park the air intake pipe outlet on the doorstep of the TB. Good idea/bad idea I don't know, obviously heat reflection would be needed

No not changing standard to a Megane scoop. Flexi hose 55mm into the plenum, skip airbox altogether and trim the plenum so air flows straight into plenum skipping resonant chamber, filter box and getting cold air as close to the butterfly as possible

Thinking of using an aluminium baking tray to line base of remaining plenum. Will need to try it and measure temps. I don't want to be swapping engines but I do think 88bhp to 130bhp is reachable without turbo. Just fishing for ideas, I like the K12, but not 88bhp
