    It isn't an "air cleaner" anymore, at least not functionally. The stacks are feeding air directly to the carb, so the filter is just doing nothing. I looked at buying that one for my '39, until I realized it wont trap any dirt.

    It'd be

    easy enough to make an aluminum plate to fit between the top of the filter element and the phony stacks base.

    Probably even easier to locate small rubber balls and stuff them in from the bottom side to plug off the holes. Then you could open them if you went to the drags.
    I wish they'd offer them with taller stacks, so if you had a lot of space it would fill the empty space above the air cleaner better. Like my '39 needs.

    Pictures at their site, and also at their Ebay page show them all open. They also sell a set of snap in screens that you can purchase separately for $31 to keep large debris from entering the stacks.

    Call who? Steve or me?

    Summit's picture shows no holes through to the inside. Speedmaster's picture at their site, and at Ebay auction both show holes through.
    When I wrote "at their site" I meant at Speedmaster's web site.

    For me, the word phony is a no-no. I wont pretend my car is something it isn't.

    I doubt anyone would look at this air cleaner and think the car had injection on it. It's not like those Garlits fake injection setup where they cover the carb to try to fool people. This is just a custom air cleaner that would look good on a engine, not a phony fake injection system.
