Changing Air filter with performance filter

Hi, i've changed my air filter with "MAX POWER" performance filter today, but there is a hose commin from the engine and i don't know what should i do with it, because i can't plug it to the filter now and it's stays free in the air. Is that a problem or i should put back the old one? Thanks

Just go buy a little air filter from an auto parts store and stick it on there.

Autozone sells little filters that look like miniature cold air intake filters. Not sure if it's as good as the stock setup, but it's better than letting the hose hang.
