    UTOH on the RULES already.. Need some help here..

    Im reading section on street equipment # 7 and it says the hood scoop must cover the entire induction system. I need to know if a hood cut tight around a roots blower with the blower scoop sticking out is ok ?? THe scoop will cover both carbs completely.. Im sure someone of AUTHORITY can let me know.. I dont recall every seeing a roots blown car at any events.. I know another TRUE STREET regular who is also planning to go ROOTS BLOWN.. I wont mention his name because I dont know if he has let that cat out of the bag..

    Can I get some help on this?

    Ah.... one of the Foldenauer rules...

    I know James was able to pass tech with the custom hood he fabricated.

    Nobody puts a scoop over a Roots Blower. Kind of like putting a funnel in front of a turbo to hide the turbo. Just tell them Super Chevy doesn't require it at their event.

    Well I was figuring they allowed Ten Second Terry from E TOWN KY to have his Enderly Bug Catcher peaking out of the hood for 2-3 years so they shouldn't have a problem with my Ostrich Catcher.. Right ? : )

    I got a phone call back from Gene Bergstrom today. He informed me that as long as I have a hood on the car that is just cut to clear the blower and scoop on the carbs the car is legal. WOO HOOO..
