Are you asking if you need to get a different MAF housing or if you can use the MAF housing you have? If so you can re-use the stock MAF housing with the CRV tube.

You don't need to use a CRV maf housing to use a CRV intake hose. I am using a modded SI MAF housing, a HPS intake hose, a CTE heatshield, and a Fujita filter with my DIY SRI.

I can't say for sure if s crv maf housing would be better for an si. All the diy sri's I've seen use the si maf housing.

I think its a top part of the stock air intake box. MAF housing is attached to it. You have to cut it out so it looks like a tube; then you attach you attach filter to one end of the housing (by coupler) and CRV air tube to the other end. So it goes
Filter -> coupler -> Si MAF housing (tube you just cut out) -> CRV intake hose -> throttle body.
Hope it helps somewhat...

Yeah you don't use the CRV MAF housing for the X intake, you just cut the Si MAF housing out of the stock intake box. Since you've already done that, you don't need to buy any other MAF housing, sounds like you're good to go =)
