fuel filter replacement

when replacing the fuel filter, there is another filter on the bottom of the pump, an "intake filter", does this ever get changed, or is it suppposed to get changed when replacing the fuel filter?

The prefilter needs no special attention other than making sure it isn't broken or very dirty.
It can be cleaned if neccesary but best left in place.
Earlier in this thread I should have added a link to the folks the make in line filters that can be used if an external filter is desired. http://www.mpsracing.com/
