You should be able to do it as long as there is enough room around the area.

Do you think it will affect the operation of the motor?

It souldn't as long as it doesn't cut into something other than just for the stud. We normally only recommend direct fit parts because it is hard to tell what may happen when we aren't there.

No need to cut allum intake does not need exhaust gas pass through as cast does it will heat up cutting out intake will get to hot and can cause gas to boil in carb
