Ofc you could route it anywhere ya wanted, the hose being w/e length you wish.
I would never consider running w/o a filter except for very short test runs like when troubleshooting the tuned pipe problem. Dust that we don't even see makes an excellent cylinder enlargement abrasive. I wore out a Homelight engine in jig time trying that trick. Two local fellows tried it with HTs and lost compression in 1/10th the expected lifetime. Big no-no.
