some guys plug the holes, some don't, some even plug the holes with plugs that have holes. Try a search and you will find lots of info. The hard part is deciding what to do once you have all the info.

Original poster, what's the engine and what type of header? Heaterbox delete tubes are often called "J-tubes" - even when on a competition style header.

If you're leaving off the heaterboxes, you want to block the holes in the tin, you can buy '2" knock-out seals' for electrical work that do the job quite well...as well as installing 1-7/8" freeze plugs in the shroud itself - this is where some people prefer to have holes drilled.

Here is a heaterbox riser I made to fit the customized header on my Baywindow...
