Airdog II installed....Deleting 2nd fuel filter

I was wondering how I can delete the secondary fuel filter. I figure since the airdog is already filtering more I can delete it. The filter thats in the bowl on top of the engine bay. I took it out today and I guess you cant really do that, it didnt sound good when i started it up so I put it back in. You cant even buy that filter alone you gotta get both which the other one is already gone. I thought I read something about this but I cant find it now and dont really have the time searching right now. Sorry if this is a repost.

In the fuel filter housing you will see a plastic plunger that the filter fits over. If you remove that it will allow fuel to flow with out a filter. BE VERY CLEAN when you do this

The AirDog is doing a great job of filtering. Just replace the OEM filters once and never worry about them again.
