Am I missing something here? The seat seal is what forces the air to go IN through the center of the filter - the air then comes OUT of the filter and goes into the intake port of the engine. If you remove that seal - you are bypassing your filter and in effect letting unfiltered air into your engine. Like I said, unless I am missing something? 2hp is not worth running unfiltered air - might as well save the $$ and just run it without the filter in place at all. The ducting would be a seperate issue between the seal and the outside incoming air from what I can see?
