WJ Snorkel STUNNING!

I am in the midst of installing one right now, will post some pictures later in the evening...do check back, its a stunning piece very nice, flows with the lines of the car, lightweight and not as squarish as the Safari which IMO is butt ugly....

Check back soon guys!

i dont see how the air gets into the snorkel, atleast with ARB it goes in where the wind hits it. and not trying to sound like a **** but why a snorkel on a stock rig with street tires. i do agree though the piece looks nice

The actual snorkels shape is nice, but I would've painted it a flat black myself. My concern is the tube is too skinny for enough air to get there. But I don't know anything...

Looks like you've got BB on there. Which one?

Good point, I still in the midst of a build. Its not exactly stock at the moment, I have some controversial mods done to the car which I shant mention ...My tires are almost out so I am going to run it to death before a swap to 32" Good Year Kevlars and a new set of 18"s

It seems quite ok performance wise. I took it for a 100km run on the highway, seems smoother now pickup wise, the transmission has less tendency to kickdown now when i gas the throttle a little more, I havent felt any loss of performance yet, need more time to evaluate, the color is standard that came with the kit...I will have it resprayed when I do the entire car.

How about some pics of inside the engine compartment and how it connects with the intake? Nice looking and seems like it works for you.
