AK gas tube vent holes??

I have a SAR-2 that has had several furniture changes over the years, and has an E. German gas tube on it now. The gas block has 4 holes where the tube attaches, and with the E. German tube on it, half of the hole is covered.

I'm wondering if I should add some holes to the E. German tube on my SAR-2? I noticed some gas blowing back in my face the last time I fired it, and I'm thinking this may be from lack of adequate gas venting? I don't recall this happening before and may be caused from too much gas.

My Chinese MAK90 has 8 holes in the tube itself, and I get no blow back on it, and it runs smooth as butter!
