Fuel filter on Q-Jet

O.K., I'm really embarrassed that my first question is this one, but here goes- I'm putting in an in- line fuel filter and was wondering if it was O.K. to get rid of the filter in the base of my Q-Jet. I know it may be a stupid question, but I'd rather humble myself than make a stupid mistake. Thanks everyone.

The in line filter work work just fine on its own. You can get rid the the carb inlet filter.

No problem's my friend. It will probably help with fuel flow as the stock filter cam be somewhat restrictive.

Thee filters inside Q-jets SUCK! Only thing that sucks on them and if your in a hurry, it is VERY easy to strip the threads on a Q-jet

Exactly my problem! Had a roadside fuel filter issue and was in a rush and started to cross thread it. I decided right then and there that I needed to get rid of that filter and install an in-line. Thanks for the replies everyone. I truly appreciate this site and all that it offers.
