No you do not have to run the stock filter in the top fuel bowl with an AD2. You simply take the filter out, but make sure to also take the plastic stand out of the middle of the bowl too or it will not flow properly. I've been running without a filter for 6 months with no problems.

I'm not sure why they do that. I've seen several people that have done away with all the stock lines and stepped up to bigger hose all the way. You can also delete that filter housing all together. I believe it was Windrunner that had a thread not too long ago about deleting the fuel bowl.

Yeah, a bunch of us have completely re-plumbed the entire fuel system eliminating all of the oem fuel system. 1/2" from tank to pump, pump to engine bay, split to dual 3/8" to the banjo's. Very common.
