The enclosure will never cause a lean situation...it's a heat shield, and not air tight.

Another way you could maybe get more fresh air there without permanently modifying the box would be to remove the top cover, putting some weather strip on the sides and rear so that the hood seals the top of the box (ala AFE), and removing the hood weather strip above the passenger side headlight.

This looks to allow some air in between the gap of the hood and headlight, straight into your filter box.

But the stock air feed is still better IMO.
