Yeah you could, although in the GT's case, its got the best cold air intake on it... a shaker sticking out of the bonnet :) I'd say that a very high proportion of the air going into the air cleaner housing on the GT would be through the shaker, and a small bit would be coming through that side inlet, so a pipe going into there wouldnt make a huge difference I'd imagine.
On the other hand... your mates civic would probably benifit slightly from having a cold air pipe connected to it, as it currently would be sucking in warmer under-bonnet air during operation if the end is open in the engine bay like the GT photo.
my 2 cents :)
