Advice please Snorkel

thinking off making a raised air intake,
would anyone have a idea. On smallest pipe I could use without restricting air intake
I was hoping 60mm what you think ?

Did they make them for the 2 kitted out G4 spec FL2 that were made ?

Maybe speak to Mantec or Safari for some options on dimensions etc 2011 D4 XS 8 speed - Orkney Grey, 2014 front end facelift, black pack

60mm diameter doesn't sound big enough.

It'll need to be bigger than the existing air pipes under the bonnet. That's because the total pipe run is being increased, and you don't want the overall resistance to increase if at all possible.

Well clicking on that link indicates on the parts and supplier list that Mantec DID INDEED supply a Raised Air Intake for that specific vehicle! Whistle Foraging near Gaydon....

I did speak to mantec today they may make one in the future
I left my name and number
If 60mm was ok I could have used some Southdown parts
Sounds like a rethink may be

If you are getting that deep to require a Snorkle, you may want to think about carrying some Oars and having the windows open, you may have a problem with actually getting traction at these depths as it will start to float. p****d off with a Digital Keyboard Warrior

Lol front wheels will grip ok
In all reality I just want to stop pulling mud into my air box
It would be nice not to change my air filter after one day's outing

This well known video shows one crossing Tong Lake, it isn't deep enough to get to the intake on the near side wing, but you can see it bobbing in places.

I think you'll find that water will piddle inside the car through the steering column grommet and the main harness bulkhead grommets. That's if they are fitted correctly.

Your missing the point, the Snorkle will be cosmetic, it will float and lose traction before/if the wing vent gets submerged, untill the holes have let enough water in to ballast it. p****d off with a Digital Keyboard Warrior

No I disagree, I have had a air box with Walter in/ and clips of mud it's only a matter of time till I kill it
Or fit a snolkal
I have had wet carpets all ready, they dry Rolling with laughter
I think it's a great car off road
I just need to change a couple off bits to improve it

Click image to enlarge

As you can see from this photo even without wading mud gets sucked in
Note the air intake on the wing, I hd a ( lot of mud in the air box)
In a short time
