I've looked thru MANY threads and can not find a sketch on how to use the stock intercooler and delete the airbox and go with a cone filter. I like midnight tokers setup but can't figure it out via pictures.

what i did is,i used the cone filter on the stock turbo pipe,the filter goes on the end of the hose that would normally connect to the airbox,then i used the blow off valve in place of the stock airbox IE the space that the airbox connected the hoses,i just stuck the BOV in between where the airbox was.the hose comes from the intercooler to the airbox,mine goes from the intercooler to one side of the BOV,then the other hose goes from the airbox to TB,mine goes from the other end of the BOV to the TB=done

when you delete the airbox, what do you do with the hose that plugs into the air box then runs to the turbo? Leave it and us a small cone filter?

The inlet to the turbo is where you install the cone filter. The outlet from the intercooler feeding the intake manifold you can run a straight pipe with a bov. Hopefully this helps

You can use ALL the stock hoses when you delete the airbox.

Step one- remove airbox
Step two - take airbox to autozone/auto parts stores
Step three - buy an exhaust pipe the same diameter of the airbox "upper" hose connectors
Step four - buy a cone filter that has a outlet near the size of the lower "turbo inlet" hose
Step five - buy an exhaust connector that adapts from the I.D. of the inlet hose, to the I.D of the cone filter

Step six - drive home and install

correct DR. JOHNY DODGE and thanks turismolover22 for your write up. Wished I would have posted this before I ordered my silicone hoses and good clamps.

can I assume that you used the cone filter for the turbo inlet and the cruise control. I my install a 3 port vacuum block to munge the turbo and cruise control so I only have to use the cone filter

Stock airbox isn't the problem. It's the 2.5" pipe that goes from the airbox to the turbo that's the restriction. The Turbo wants 3" pipe from your filter to your turbo. If you don't then you might as well keep the stock airbox.
