Default What happens if my aftermarket intake isn't plugged into the engine on my RSX Type S?

So I was trying to fix the hood of my Acura RSX type S and noticed that the tube connecting my aftermarket cold air intake to the engine had popped off. I tried to reattach but the tube is to short (I may have lost a piece). How should I solve this problem? Could I get a piece of tube to extend the to the engine? I was also surprised to see that the check engine light didn't come on, temperature was fine and the drove the same as always. Any help appreciated!

This picture should help it's not from my car but you can see where the intake attaches on the top right side of the engine

I fixed the problem

It will let dirty air into your engine, not good for it.

edit, I see you fixed it.
