what to do with the aux air hose after intake install?

So i installed my mini, afe intake, and 4' flo pro last night took about 4 hours no bad at all but my dpf had been replace 7000 miles ago. really impressed with the power and i under stand the super hairdyer sound now! my question is with the intake the plastic hose the runs along top of the intake i couldn't find anything in the directions with what to do with it so do you just keep it there?

Also thanks to nate for the fast shipping and answering all my questions before i ordered. i'm sure he anwers the same questions 10000000 times a day!!

If its the one Im thinking of you can leave it or follow it and its only held on by a small clip and goes to nothing.

im not exactly sure what hose youre talking about but after my intake install, there was an air hose from the motor that connects back into the intake but in the summer im going to disconnect it because it's hot air.

It's the pre-heat tube. My K&N instructions said to remove it. Keep it around with the rest of the factory intake just in case you have to put it back to stock someday. I put mine K&N on and then took it off so I can take it in for a full service checkup without any questions about warranty.

I left mine on at first, but seeings how it leaves a nice big black spot on the filter it had to come off. There is a spot on the S&B where can keep it connected but it wont flow into the filter housing.
