That's essentially what I have on the car right now, but I don't know if the one with the hose leading to the idle air hose thing is necessary, or if I can just block it of, leave it open, or put another small filter on it
I would say that it looks like a Shankle QuadraFlow, a product sold 30 years ago by Shankle Engineering that was essentially a K&N filter with two curved tubes welded to the plate (see photo below). But the engine in your photo has four, individual filters, instead of two, dual filters. Lots has been written here on the BB about the disadvantages of using aftermarket filters, rather than the OE filter, with Spica injection.

I don't think the tube fitting at the #2 filter is anything unique; black plastic fittings that fit into sheet metal filters and accept vent tubes are a common part. For example, see: K&N Air Filter Assembly Vents 85-1120 And yes, the connection to the Spica manifold should go somewhere; it should NOT be blocked off. I have seen people use a small, individual filter rather than connect it to the air filter.
Hello Alfisti, I am in the process of having my SPICA pump rebuilt and I am changing out my intake cam to a 10.5 lift. I've spoken with Wes Ingram who'll be building the pump for this purpose. My question is how would I go about ordering the correct shims? I've removed a cam before, so I'm...
I get endless questions on engine building, cam issues and gearbox problems that I will share on this thread as others can benefit from the information.
I will start a similar one on the transmission / transaxle area for those type questions.

We are hoping to use a bare, non-painted valve cover on the engine in our race car. We ended up with three, before I knew what to look for, and none of them seem good. Am I chasing down a never ending path?
The first one we got was painted black. We stripped off the paint with walnut shells...
Hi, I'm a new member. I have already introduced myself in the specific thread.
My car is a GT 1300 Junior, but since i bought it already had a 1600 engine installed.
I am trying to understand what type of engine it is. Unfortunately the engine has a blank engine code, both close to the gearbox...
