If you cut everything from the silencer and leave the 3 bolts in place you end up with a 3" inlet that a cone filter can be attached to. Take your paper filter and cut out the filter media leaving only the gasket to seal the box.

It's a cheap cold air intake. The harmful thing about the silencer is that the gap between the funnel and the entry allow the box to cancel sound using the properties of Helmholtz Resonance. Since this basically makes the sound 180* out of phase with the incoming air it cancels sound, and creates a restriction like (not exactly but close) a musical instrument such as a wood wind or even brass.
