The U.S. Army vaguely envisioned something bigger than a motorcycle, smaller than a truck, and undaunted by the most difficult terrain.

To the OP, there are lots of DIY snorkel write ups. Get on Teh Googlez and search. Get some ideas, draw up a plan, then go to the hardware store. Remember that most pipe fittings are available in 45º and 90º angles with a limited selection of 22.5º fittings.

Also, the only way a snorkel would help your fuel economy is if it is so restrictive it limits your maximum power.
