I did this on an Avatar mask.

Didn't seem to make any difference and turned out ugly so I bought a Proflex.

Now I've got a cut Avatar that never gets used. But I decided I like the Proflex better anyway.

I agree with adding the venting on the sides.... The problem with them is your exhaled air just sits there behind the mask. It would not be a big deal if the mask was not so close to your face, but the combination of less venting on the sides and it being closer makes it very hard to breathe... I was using them today and was having problems breathing in them, then I switched to my old JT Spectras and had no problems breathing. I think I may add some venting to the sides...

Vents where there are no vents. Look at any other paintball mask. There are vents all around the mouth area to help vent your exhaled breath and allow the air to move.

A friend of mine did this kind of mod to his avatar, will try to get pictures. but he just took the tool it's used to make a belt holes and made some holes in the front part for venting/voicing and made some holes in the ear in order to have a better audition.
