Fitting a K&N air filter?!?

Ryte guys, I've got a 1.6 grande punto sporting and am struggling to fit this k&n air filter, just doesn't seem to fit the pipe work that's already in there, do I have to get new piping and if so does anyone know where to get it from? :s I bought it and it described it to fit a 2008>2010 grande punto 1.6 diesel which matches mine, just confused? Any help? few pics showing my engine bay and the filter I've bought.
Cheers

Does it not just go onto the end of the pipe that goes from the turbo to the airbox? With the use of an adapter that should be in the box?

Obviously the airbox needs removing but im sure you guessed that lol.

Thats how it works on the t-jet anyway

Nah the hole on the filter is way bigger than the standard hose end :/ the filter didn't come with a adapter which that's what I was abit confused about :s on the filter there isn't like anything for a pipe to connect to aswell which is abit weird :/

And what did you make the pipe out of?? Is yours a 1.6 mjet??

Mines only a tiny 1.4 8v lmfao but I used an old air intake pipe from an escort which I previously owned a few year back (I no I no a ford part on a fiat but like I said it works perfect till I get around to it)

Create your own pipe work then you can have fancy colours
