    I think youll probs find the "pipe" u get is actually a cold air feed pipe and is for directing cold air towards the filter. The original air intake trunking usually remains intact due to the nature of modern engines utilising AirFlow meters or Air intake temp sensors in the intake trunking.

    If u have an early 8v (X16SZR) then u could in theory remove all the original trunking a fit a "new pipe" from the filter itself to the throttle body. This though, u would have to manufacture/purchase ur self as it wont come part of a normal run of the mill 57i kit for instance... only the filter, some basic connections and a cold air feed. All depends what engine u have as to how easy it is to modify the trunking.

    Hope this helps
