Easy Dumb Question - cutting intake horn

Just got my hands on a raised air intake. Looks like I need to cut the horn on the intake to attach the hose.

Never really cut these kinda things before. Two questions. 1. What is the best tool for cutting the horn? 2. About where should I make the cut to attach the hose?

Thanks in advance for the extremely basic mechanical advice. I'm just trying not to f shit up.

Thanks guys. I'll give it a go with the hack saw considering I actually have one of those.

Thoughts on how much to cut off?

Amarveer, Not sure where to cut but I've got every cutting tool you need to do it if you want to come to Fullerton one of these days.

Hack saw or my mohel scissors would work. Metal and foreskins are very similar.

Thanks Chris. I might have to take you up on that if my methods don't work out. (just to be sure, we're talking about angle grinders and not mohel scissors right?)

I heard Barry uses his teeth, than he collects the remains and frys them up like crispy calamari rings.
