Of the three pictures:
a.) Not feasable bcs you would need an extension for both the snorkel and air intake which would be pointless and cumbersome.

b.) Probably best option bcs easy access to filter, easier to fab, and leaves engine bay less cluttered

c.) would work, but engine bay would be crowded and you are leaving all of your connections under the snorkel height so just more likely a chance for a leak.

I'd do Option A & B, except leave the filter in option B's spot. You may not quite have the Ram air effect, but I think you would have less likely of a chance of getting water in the intake. Also less work when you need to extend it for deep water crossing.

Wouldn't that make for a boring forum

The hummer style snorkel looks monumentally better than ARB adds a unique look. Definitely move forward but from my experience, those parts are hard to come by and arent cheap. Good luck, can't wait to see how it turns out.

I have contemplated the same mod... picked up an XJ elbow coming off the throttle body... 3.125" alum plumbing through the firewall into the wiper cowling area... i was thinking of using a really tall cone type filter inside of the tubing? just have to find one that has enough CFM... I will be going for a low mounted mushroom... the Hummer snorkel really limits your vision... as for the marine, army...air force versions... none of them were factory built armored...they were not designed to be armored... the company i design for used to up armor them.
