    I currently have a breather filter, but my new intake has a hole to run the hose to the vavle cover. Should i take off the breather filter? What are the pros and cons?

    I would, because believe it or not, your engine will run better by allowing you to vent excess air from the crank case quicker. Hardly noticable, but the benefit is there.
