    Can I modify an Edison with an internal antenna to get better performance with an external one?

      I have several Edison modules with onboard antennas being used in metal boxes with external antennas.  Don't let anyone say that doesn't work because it does.  But would it work better if I were to remove the infamous zero ohm resistor?  Is that really the correct change to make an Edison with internal antenna the same as one intended for an external antenna?  How much better would it work?  These units are out of warranty so that is not an issue.  When I purchased them I did not realize I needed a metal box but the environment the box is in requires it.  The online guidance is all over the place from just remove the black resistor to I broke my Edison removing the zero ohm resistor (Youtube).  Anyone done this?
