Wales 2008 Freelander 2 TD4 XS Manual Santorini Black

As it happens I was hoping to be in Tenerife as of Saturday but work priorities got in the way I'm afraid.

There's no reason why you couldn't fit a reducer down to 60mm from the side vent now so that the upright part is smaller if you don't like the fit or look of the 76mm pipe. Would have to make a reducer though, or fit a smaller in the opening and make an adequate seal. Thumbs Up

Will be fun routing the tubing behind the wing tho lol

Smaller id pipe behind the Wing would have made thing much more easy

United Kingdom 2012 Freelander 2 TD4 GS Manual Indus Silver

Personally I think the top is sticking out too much, I'd lower it down a few inches to put it more inline with the roofline.

But also thinking off fitting this

United Kingdom 2007 Freelander 2 TD4 HSE Manual Tambora Flame

This is interesting Thumbs Up . Do you think the increase in air flow pressure will affect running as with normal setup I would imagine the air intake to be under negative pressure, with the snorkel it should have positive pressure? Will any re-mapping be required?

Doesn't look good IMO

Too high, too round and would look better on a bashed up Def or Disco 2 not the modern lines of a FL2

Might look better if you could reduce the hight and maybe flatted the roundness to be more oval No Longer the Site Moderator - Martins the Man to Speak too now
