better airflow i think

Minimal effect if anything. Don't really see it being worth the time.

yeah but would that even be practical, since with a cai you already have more then enough air. but i guess if your motor is boosted with more mods it might help a tiny bit

Don't do it! Many people have tried this and ended up having problems and having to get a new MAF sensor (which isn't cheap!). The screen is there for a reason. It eliminates turbulence and keeps the airflow straight over the sensor wires so they get an accurate reading. Taking the screen out can affect the sensors reading and even cause a check engine light.
