since there is no kit out there for the new DS, do you think it's possible to retrofit one by removing the stock airbox or airbox cover and throw a high flow cone shaped racing filter at the end of the pipe? worth trying? thoughts?

This puzzles me, the car already pulls air from outside the engine bay.
Why would you want the car to ingest heated underhood air?
I understand that the plumbing is restrictive, but I would think any gains in flow would be reduced by increased intake air temperature which the intercooler has to fight hard against already.
We used to that back in the day, and really all that would happen is that you would have a lot more noise underhood.
Sounds interesting. Let us know how it turns out.

That is a valid point. Thanks for it. Not going to do that. That's why I seek for advises on here. I'm not exactly a car guy, I'd just like to add a bit of fun to my driving.

Maybe you can change out the OEM air filter for a high flow aftermarket type like K&N filter. It *might* increase airflow...that i'm not sure. Could be just marketing/P.R. crap. Haha. Let us know if you try that route.

One thing to note, while the K&N filters do generally have a higher flow rate, most attribute that to poorer filtering performance.

You may be better off just blowing out your paper filter on a regular basis
