Measure the outlet of the K/N filter (diameter, length) and just try to find another brand filter with the same outlet dimensions...I'm sure with a little detective work you'll find something that'll allow you to keep the tubing. Check out AEM air filters, they are washable dry filters, no oiling necessary, or AFE, AFE is quality. There are many brands to choose from, you just gotta spend the time doing the research. Good luck. My brother has the exact same issue...he just bought a '99 with a K/N setup, he also wants to get a different filter. If he finds one soon I'll let ya know what he got. Happy hunting.
PS: Solved your problem and my brother's partially: Go to the K&N website, enter in your vehicle info, select the FIPK kit for your vehicle, then under the "replacement parts" section of the page, select "replacement filter"...the page that comes up has ALL the dimension info for the filter...now, just find one of another brand you like that matches those dimensions...EASY.
