YJ cowl intake (snorkel).

I tried the search but had no luck. I want to ditch the ARB snorkel and run the intake into the cowl vent. Has anyone done this or know someone that has.

There are two writeups of people who have done this to their TJ's at http://www.michiganjeepers.com/forum...=&Board=tjtech
Those might be a good place to start.
I think the hummer style snorkel looks pretty sweet!

I have also discussed that same mod with a couple of friends - and from what we can figure out - it should work without a problem.

Now - to find someone willing to let us try it out

I know, it sounds kinda wierd.. but I cant see allot of water making it into the interior while river crossing.... just an idea guys

I don't like the idea of having the intake drawing air from the cab. Reasons being the noise, possibility of backfire fumes, and fire. I know the last two reasons are far fetched but but I would rather avoid those problems than take the risk of them happening.

I am thinking that a defroster duct from a CJ might work for the piece going through the firewall. I have never seen one so if someone happens to know the approximate dimensions please let me know. I think that a wide head vacuum cleaner attachment could also work if shaped correctly. Anyway, these are just some ideas and if someone has suggestions just speak up. I will take pics of the whole project and would like to do a write up but I'm not sure that I can with my limited PC knowledge.

Oh yeah, I have a buddy that wants the snorkel as soon as it comes off so it's basically sold.

I just completed the finishing touches on this snorkel. Deepest ford with this setup so far is three feet with no problems.

What did you use for the piece that draws air from the cowl? Do you have any pics? I picked up a shop vac end piece that should work to hook into the cowl. Pics, pics,pics. PLEASE.

I just stuck a piece of 3" pvc pipe through the firewall. Seems to work.
