SC intake tube

On my Vortech i have my intake tube running down into my fender to my MAF and filter. I would like to replace that with a more direct custom-bent aluminum tubing for a colder air charge. (2) There is the bypass valve going into that tube, though.. Can that be dirrected somewhere else? Maybe just disconnect it and add a small filter to the end of it?

(1) Location of the filter

Beyond the smooth, larger diameter tubing comming right out of the SC is some smaller flexable junk that I know restricts airflow and gets warm. I would like to replace all of the above with a tube that is just as large as the opening for the Vortech intake and down to a filter that will be considerably larger. (the K&N vortech supplies is rather small)

What would one suggest?
