Default Factory Fuel Filter delete with airdog?

Anyone delete their factory fuel filter and housing when using the Airdog system with the filters? Just curious. Seems like it should be ok and clean up the engine bay a little bit.

I was thinking that all the factory lines were aluminum. Am I wrong?

Edit: Hell maybe I'll just run new fuel line straight to the pump.
