OK, OK, keep your pants on! JKI'm sitting here geting ready to hit the "confirm order" button on the websites to order the supplies for this mod but need the rest of the pictures so I can make sure I do it right.
A snorkel with drain holes in the air box is completely useless if you think about it. :brickwallNo b/c he will hook it below the air filter on the stock air box. what accumulates will drain out the box.
ARB has a 3 and a 3.5" top. Any 4 or 6 cyl will be fine with a 3" intake, even mild V8's, but I figured if I ever get around to a V8 I could run one on the other side to match.That is very professional looking work there. I've been wanting a snorkel for my YJ also but for one, the ARB one is WAY overpriced. Two, the 3" pipe would be too restricting for my engine since my MAF is about 5" and I'm running a short 4" tube to the filter. I don't want to choke the engine anymore than that. I'd love to build one of these but the ARB top diameter would be too small I think. Maybe I should do a dual intake set-up :fish: Too bad no one makes a snorkel for a V8 swapped Jeep since it is a common thing to do.
You would be suprised how heavy the tubing is. Honestly I think if I hit something that hard it would shear the bolts holding it off first or bend the brackets. Where I ride thats not a problem either.:thumbsup:Are you worried about denting the exaust tube if you rub/hit a tree or something? I would imagine the arb plastic would bend back....but am not sure about that. yours looks clean though. I like the hood inlet
Personally I routed a hose from the breather of mine to the top of the firewall and put electro-grease on all of the plugs/connectors and regular lube grease on the base of each plug to slow the water down.:thumbsup:How would you go about hooking up a snorkle if you had a carbed engine? I dont even have an air box.
And wont your distributer get wet and kill the engine before you could get vary deep?
