If you do find another cover that you can mutilate to get that sound do this: Purchase a drop in lifetime air filter like a K&N. Then purchase some nylon pantyhose, and stretch it over the holes. Don't pull it so tight that you can see through the holes in the pantyhose, but make sure it form fits the cover. This is an old dirt bike racing trick. Loose nylon pantyhose sheds off water (and mud), but has no effect on air flow.

If you ever install an oil infused filter like a K&N, then you must also purchase some MAF cleaner, and remove and clean the MAF weekly for approximately a month after installing the filter. This is because the oil on the filter contaminates the MAF and reduces fuel economy.
