sink vent pipe


I am remodeling my kithen and removing the existing bulkhead si we can install taller cabinets. The sink vent pipe runs up the exterior wall does a 90 in the bulk headand the up to the roof. Is there any raeson I can't run it up through the seal plate (I think that is what is called-the two horizontal 2x4's) and then 90 and up to the roof? The is enough clearance to accomplish that, just not sure it it is okay to drill a hole in the seal plate.

I typically do drill the top plates but there may be a structural reason why the original plumber didn't.
And it's sill plate- which is at the floor

No such thing as a seal plate, if your talking about a double top plate, drill all you want not going to effect anything.
