Venting outside would be a great idea. Get all the harmful stuff out of the shop. I will mention that removing the filters and venting outside, will decrease the static pressure in your system and increase the airflow. This of course means your dc will be drawing more amperage. This may not be a problem given the size of your shop. I have a feeling that the static pressure for your ducting system will far outweigh the lack of static pressure decrease from the absence of the filter…and the motor is 5hp.
