    Sure can, there's a couple way you can do it. Some old masonry units already have an outside air vent someplace, so you can certain knock the grill off and run it through that. Also you can run the fresh air liner all the way up to the top with the exhaust liner. Third option is to core a hole in the back of the masonry unit if its on an outside wall.

    We have never had to do it yet. What we were thinking was to use two of the same 3" liner, one for exhaust and one for fresh air, and run them side by side. We would then put a piece of rigid on the top of the exhaust to get it higher and keep the fresh air lower down. Possibly put a 90 elbow on the fresh air with a 6" and a cap. Would probably have to take the normal top plate with the kit and cut an extra hole in it with an extra storm collar or make a custom top plate. It was going to be pain, glad the guy changed his mind in doing it.
