Good for you. You dont have to be interested in one.

If you don't want or need a snorkel that's fine, there is also no need for you to comment on this thread in that case!.

If your air in take is located inside the engine bay (as most of these so called cold air intakes are), then it is not a genuine CAI!, as all the air in the engine bay has been heated by the radiator and engine and exhaust etc, (try getting a temp reading from inside your engine bay and one from outside, no need to guess which will be cooler! ).
The only way to have a true CAI is to source the air from outside the engine bay, and preferably from as high up as possible where the air is cooler away from the road!.

No matter where it comes from the air will heat up, when air is compressed its temperature increased either by compression or ram air it still get hotter.

True!, but the cooler the air the more dense, the more dense the air the more can fit in a cylinder, the more air in the cylinder the more power!.
That is the whole point of a CAI, to get more air (oxygen) into the engine to get more power out!,

Let's stay on topic, please. Snorkels not CAI.

Ah yes but The point I'm trying to get across is that the only true/genuine CAI is in fact a snorkel

I understand that just don't want to get on a completely new topic of CAIs.

Fair call, I'll play nice from now,
Hopefully it won't take Airflow too long to get the WK2 snorkel kit into production

Not much news lately from Airflow, last news was it would be ready by the end of the year, we've had word that Safari snorkels are developing one for the WK2 as well, the big news is that Murchison Products are in the test faze for their snorkel for the WK2 and those that have had a chance to have a sneak peak say it looks good and suits the WK2 well, Murchison Products are saying early next year for their snorkel

Can't tell you if it's one peace as I haven't seen it and there are no photos, we'll just have to wait until Murchison products decide to show us what it looks like, keep an eye on their web site and/or Facebook page
