Default Strut tower modifying

I have a 2002 Camaro with a AJE front suspenion.I wanna notch the strut towers so i can work on the motor easier.Is there a rule that says i can't do that. I plan on running either super street or nosaglia pro street.I seen cars done like that already just wanted your input.

I believe you can notch them, but they have ot filled back in. you can't just leave the hole there. That is an NHRA rule, more than a class rule

I've talked to a NSCA 10.5 racer Shawn Zubler and he told me his car around 2980 with a 710 BBC and him in the car with power windows and all stock glass.His windshield might be lexan i'm not sure i just know what he told me.He has no reason to lie about the weight of his car to me.His fender are stock.The front nose and hood aftermarket probably carbon fiber.
