Hi Everyone! Is my C Max normal?

Newbie saying Hi here! Been having a read of this site for while now and decided to sign up, but I'm afraid my first post is asking questions...

I bought a 2006 2.0 tdci C Max in Tonic a short while back and so far I have been very happy with the car. However the last couple day days the car has felt a little down on power, so after a search on this site and with the help of the haynes manual I plan to check some of the usual suspects at the weekend, weather permitting.

Last night I pulled the engine cover off and decided to have a quick look around the engine bay to familiarise myself with it before starting any work and the air intake seems quite odd to me. The pipes that form the air inlet are in a y shape, joining just before the part where the EGR pipe joins the manifold. I can see that the left hand leg of the 'Y' is the pipe that come from the intercooler, but I can't see where the right hand leg of the 'Y' goes untill I do some more digging.

Can anyone tell me if they are all like this, and if so, why? I have tried to search for immages of the same engine with the cover removed but come up empty handed so far.
