He has a snorkel, if he wants to clean his engine bay he just drives it trough a body of water.

Haha, owned.

I could do the same thing using the factory airbox but run the intake out the grill instead of the hood. I could have the snorkel part removable since I generally avoid deep holes but sometimes you just have to go for it to venture on down the trail. It could be made nice and tidy looking when the snorkel is not on there. I plan to also plug the tiny drain holes in the airbox since they have no one way valves (stupid). I'll put a larger drain in there with a valve like what my quad has.

Thanks for posting your custom snorkel that's just awesome!
There was a guy on JU that did that back in the day. AlaskaZJ I think it was.

He had the pipe come straight out of the grille, it fit flush with the grille, then he had a pvc extension he put on before hitting water crossings. So when he wasn't using it, all you saw was the round inlet pipe between the grill slats (I think he might have knocked one of them out for this).

run down to the hardware and get you a round vent grille so you can pop off the snorkel when not in use or needed.
