My understanding is that the filter is designed for moderate dusty driving and that removing the dust collector (a major restriction at the entrance to the filter) you will no longer be at 176 cfm. If you look at the consctruction of the filter it can absorb a lot of junk before you see any restriction from a dirty filter.
