you can try and remove the piece on the fender that blocks the hole if it's still there. chances are it's not gonna make it any louder unless you drove w/o the lid on the box.

Go to Kennedy diesel dot com and look in the tech tips for the Duramax. There you will find a Air Box Mod that should help get more air into the engine and maybe make a lil more noise. There are also a few other mods that will make owning a Dmax a little more enjoyable than what it already is.
