S&B intake plugs

Are the holes in the intake supposed to be open or closed with the pipe?

Let me rephase the question. There are 2 places on ths side of the filter for the hose to go on. One is plugged, one is open into the air box. Which one does the hose go into?

Since you cleared it up, either will work. If you live in a cold climate you might want to put it in the open hole. If you live in a warm climate use the plugged hole or just remove it completely. I usually take the whole assembly off here in NC.

The hose takes warm air from the turbo area and directs it to the intake. This helps with warm-up, but I think the trucks warm up quick enough.

...and don't forget it helps melt the snow that clogs your air filter!! Really bites when you have to remove your whole intake to clean your filter and box of snow in a blizzard!
