So far no one has found a way past the MAF... Sorry.. I took the resonator off the top of the filter cover. It makes a little bit more noise. I've heard of people using a Rampod filter on the intake but I've never seen photo's. So I don't know what they do with it. My only suggestion is to redirect a tube from the airbox directly to the front of the car.

I posted something about this on HyundaiTuner a few days back but I think HT is up the sh!t.
In any case, the gist of what I was on about was based around the fact that DSMs use the same crappy MAFS-in-a-can that you guys are stuck with. So, therefore a CAI setup for a DSM will work for you. Check this link for starters:
Then create a large sealed box area around the filter using a shaped piece of tin, the body work and the bonnet to create the sides. Route a pice of duct pipe from your front bumper and voila! Home-made X2 CAI.
I had a similiar idea in mind, except, i was gonna cut a hole in the hood directly above the air cleaner assembly, then mount a small air scoop on that.. then id just have to worry about water getting in. It might look stupid, with the scoop offset to the one side and all, but i'm one for form over function. It's an excel, not a Ferarri.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
After you pull out the resonator/box and trim the air can, simply snake the piece of plastic flex tubing down where the resonator went and attach it facing out front, either cutting a hole in the bumper trim or utilizing an existing opening. The top of the pipe will be right below the open cone filter, feeding it outside air. Best of all it would cost $10 or less and be minimal hassle...<img src=/images/forums/snitz/approve.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
Granted, it won't work as well as a true CAI, but it should still be effective...
