Default 94 Ranger Cold-Air Intake Mod?

I was wondering which of the tube's that go into the stock air box on my 94 4.0L Ranger can i take out, to put in a cold-air-intake? I'm keeping everything stock to the filter box, but i'm taking the filter box out and putting a conical filter inplace of the stock filter box.

Here's my MAF Adapter I'm using: http://www.amazon.com/Ranger-Mustang-Bronco-Escape-Adapter/dp/B003XBAMO2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=hi&qid=1308708151&sr=8-1
I've noticed that there is a rectangular tube coming out of the bottom of the air-box and I was wondering what do I do with this since i'm using a conical filter instead of the stock air-box?

Also I've noticed 2 rubber hoses going into the air-box. What do I do with theese 2 rubber hoses, so I can use a conical filter?

Does anyone know what this hose is used for? The one that goes into the engine block? Do I plug it?

Do not plug it your engine draws air from over the manifold while warming up

I'm just gonna angle that pipe so that the heat from the exhaust is aimed outside of the engine bay. My question is what do I do with the two hoses that mount to the back of the air filter box?

Those are for warm-air intake when it's cold outside. There is a sensor in the airbox that breaks the connection between the two lines. When the incoming air is excessively cold, that sensor opens up, and drives a vacuum motor down in the intake, and it takes air from right next to the exhaust manifold until it warms up some. Just plug them off at the vacumn tree with these.
