A question about air filters

My Magnum has this pipe attached to the carb:

The metal mesh filter is in the middle.

Looking at pictures of other Magnums, I'm seeing many have this type of air filter attached rather than the pipe.

What is the difference between the pipe I have and the small filter and which is better?

I'm still trying to determine cause of low power when accelerating and wondering if this pipe may be the problem. When giving it throttle, if I put my hand over part of the hole at end of pipe, the power seems to pick up.

Should I ditch the pipe and buy a small filter? Or maybe there is supposed to be something in that hole on end of pipe that I'm missing?

Thanks.
