id leave the sleeve in but dremel down those two nubs that held the flap in place. I could see it having sealing issues without.

id be willing to bet that the inside of the sleeve matches up well with the port on the head, where the unsleeved one wont and looks bad for flow (sharp edges, weird shape)
