Just a thought... Snorkel

When fitting a snorkel how do you get the breather pipes up to the top
of the intake? Outside or inside the snorkel?

Whichever way you go you must have to eiether cut into the air pipe
(how do you seal back up again?), or cut a hole in the wing and cable
tie to the outside of the snorkel?

Or do they come with a hole already for you to route breather pipes???

....just a thought!

If you mean the gearbox and axle breathers then they go on the outside
of the snorkel.

Re: Just a thought... Snorkel

OK, so it seems they all cable tie to the outside of the snorkel...

But how do you neatly get the pipes from inside the engine bay to the
outside of the vehicle so that you can tie to the outside of the
snorkel??

Re: Just a thought... Snorkel

I suppose it depends what car and what snorkel.
The snorkel on our 90 comes out of the top of the wing through the drivers
side vent type thing and we have a cable that follows up through for the
roof lights - same positioning as breathers

make it fit!
