Well, I was interested in acquiring a sports air filter for my 1.6 R56 gasoline Mini Cooper of the year 2009. I have seen that as standard my Mini has in the area of the air filter a kind of muffler (it is a black box). The thing is that I have been told that this box can be removed and replaced with a kind of tube (removing the box would leave a hole that must be filled with a silicone tube or something similar). I have seen that complete k&n kits are very expensive. Checking in stores, I can buy a k&n filter for 80 euro (it is not the complete kit, because, the complete one includes aluminium tube and so on). Do you know any way to get that tube in a cheap way? I'm not sure if a silicone tube would suit the engine. I hope you understand what I am referring to.

Thank you very much in advance.
