Probably not a good idea as reversion will send gas mist back towards the filters.

PVC doesn't like some of the items contained in gasoline.

HDPE may be better.

Seems like that would really restrict flow at high rpm, which would negate the advantage of the individual filters.

Ask the guy you bought it from.
That's the easiest way.
We could all fathom reasons but humans do weird stuff all the time. I know I do.
Just take them off and start the tuning process.

Could we see a picture of this? I’m guessing the effective throat size of the carb has been cut down substantially.

Sounds like a work around to use wrong size filters on the mouths. I have done this but only on the outside of the carb mouth but not the inside as its too restrictive.

Be sure that you buy high quality filters like those sold by APE, Uni and K&N. There are cheap Chinese knockoffs that will give you endless headaches because they do not flow properly and often block the air corrector jets, so be sure you get the genuine articles.
