Air intake with turbo

So I have a K& N cold air intake right now and i would like to add a turbo in the near future. i've got all the turbo stuff figured out but is it possible to still use my K&N cold air intake with it or would I have to redo all the piping and put in a new cold air?

It may be possible to fabricate something out of it. But no you could not use it the way it is. You would have to cut off the heat shield and flip the intake around somehow. My suggestion is to sell your K&N and use that money to buy new intake parts. I actually had a friend that was going turbo and traded me his K&N for my WR intake. Since the piping was different and would be easier to modify.
