There is a chance that the system worked without those rings if the clamps were really tight. But if there was a leak it would add unmetered air into the system.
Physically the intake would install that way (with step down ring on the MAF side) but I'm not sure what it would do to the engine management. I would get the new MAF. Afterall getting more air into the engine is the whole point. More air = more power.
Total cost so far in euro
