No the rules aren't made up as they go. I have the holes plugged in my airbox, and have no trouble. May I ask what track you where at. You can send it to me in a pm if you like.

Off of SPG rules. -  Tank vent tube may be disconnected and fuel cap fixed to vent. However if you unhook it you must plug the hose that runs to the air box.

But what he is referring to is the hole in the bottom of the air box that comes factory open and not plugged.
Doesn't state anywhere in the rules that the hole in the bottom of the air box  is supposed to be plugged.

Eric this call was made to the fact that I personally was DQ'd at a race for the same item, that I won. It was made very clear to me that All wholes had to be plunged. I have Personally pluged every engine from that day on. If there is any clarification that can be done on this topic, I would like to know it Myself.

we are just trying to figure out where this is stated as a rule. cause the spg rules clearly doesn't state anything pertaining to that hole in the air box.

Your source for Moree Kings Tires & Outlaw wheels.
The intent of the rules is to prevent air from entering the air box anywhere but through the air filter. If I am correct the hole you are referring to is the metal lined bolt hole that is used to attach the box to the lever assembly. This hole does not have to be plugged as it does not allow extra air to enter the box. Any air that flows through this hole still has to pass through the air filter to enter the engine. On the hemi air box there is only one hole that has to be plugged and that is the line going to the fuel tank. The valve cover line must be connected as per factory configuration. There are no other holes that admit air to the post filter areas of the box.

I ask Why was I told all wholes had to be plunged?  If the intent of the rules is like you say why would you not have all wholes plunged?   Also Who is the final say on this topic, Goob or?

I feel who ever it is that runs the "spg" should state it in the rules if it is now a rule. Or chime in and inform us all so we know.

To clarify the rules, air may only enter the engine through the air filter. There are only 2 holes in the air box through which the engine could receive un-filtered air, one is the valve cover vent tube which must be attached in factory configuration. The other access point is the fuel tank vent tube which must be plugged if it is disconnected from the fuel tank. There are no other holes that could supply extra unfiltered air to the engine. The bolt hole in question is open from the factory and provides no performance gain. Air entering the upper airbox through this hole still must pass through the filter to reach the engine.

Therefore the bolt hole may be plugged or left open. It has no bearing on engine performance and is not a tech item other than as, being part of the air box' it must remain as factory produced.


Thank You, SPG
