You can remove it if you need. If you start having oil come out then they have special breather for that

Those covers look great on your engine.
I have a set of the tall, ball milled covers from either them or White Performance myself.
Gotta' love the price.

Yeah they look great. I was scared of the quality. Even though the welds look great. So I used cork gaskets, since they squish better. The flange almost looks like its bandsaw cut, instead of machined. But I had no problem with leaks.

Yeah, if you think about it the rough surface probably "holds" a gasket better and keeps it from slipping out.
