Default Hidden snorkle

I started my hidden snorkle this afternoon. Got the idea from l2en from back in the day. Got everything mocked up, tomorrow I will glue, silicon and paint and make it look nice.

This isn't a full time snorkle so your truck doesn't feel bogged down. So I can run regular or close it and run through the snorkle.

Sorry for the crappy cell pics

Picked up a 3" gate valve

open

closed

modding the air box

had to cut another hole in the side and trim down the gate valve
open

closed just running through the snorkle

Behind the fender from the intake

up higher back into the engine bay

then running up into the cowl for a hidden snorkle


I will get better pics when I finish it up

I have it downturned so a little spashing won't do anything and if I have the entire hood submerged I have bigger issues

Don't plan on it but you never know when you will have a river crossing in front of you

Fair enough... the snorkel does look a whole cheaper than dealing with a hydrolock. So even if it doesn't "really" get used it still fits nicely in the cost/benefit ratio.

exactly, 50 bucks and a few hours is worth it for that one day or that one hole that you didn't think was that deep
