when you did a fender snorkle do you leave the plastic for the inner fender attached.

does that make sence. like the inner fender plastic that is black. does it still breath as well as the stock location. <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0">

I did mine in the fenderwell at first, its a really shitty idea. no matter what you do, you get a ton of dust in there. I would run it in the vent like mentioned or like mine way up high..

you know, as i have pondered the idea, it may not work in the winter because snow likes to pile up there and if it gets hot it will roll and get sucked into the airfilter. <IMG SRC="smilies/crybaby2.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/crybaby2.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/crybaby2.gif" border="0">

I saw Arndog's Toy when I bought an electric fan from him. He had one that went through the drivers side of the fender but the intake was near the top of the windshield, looked cool as hell too!

Oh I love sunny California!!! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> The vent has drains in it. Or you can run the hose into your cab, put some fur around the inside of the hose, Oh never mind!!!! <IMG SRC="smilies/laughing.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce2.gif" border="0">

Hi COOP. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> Did that Black Magic fan work out for you?

I had that idea for years, Do you use the vents that also get air from that positive pressure location If so is there still pleanty of flow into the cab? And if those vents are open going down the road do you get the engine noise into the cab? <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

Yes I still have plenty of air coming into the cab. I do have a bit more engine noise, sort of reminds me of the old days in my 55 Chevy with 2 4's and no air cleaners and I would stomp on it!!!! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I did mine similar to OOPS, but instead of taking air from under the vent, I routed the snorkle back into the rear of the engine compartment. I can send you a picture if you want...

Thanks OOPS for that info. With the V8 it's noise anyway. Yep remember turning the air cleaner cover ove for throaty sound.

Keep the air the engine is breathing cool (air expands when it gets hot, so you can squeeze less of it into the cylinder, so less HP) if you can. i.e.- try not to take air out of the engine bay if at all possible.

If you're worried about water in the filter box, do what I did. (BTW - I have an external windshield height snorkel I made, and it points forward... lots of water into air intake when raining/snowing) and go down to the Wal-Mart boating section. Pick up a "baitwell plug" with a 1/2" diameter:


It's rubber and has a little pivoting handle on it, and two of them are about $2.99. It's slightly smaller than 1/2" but expands to slightly larger than 1/2" when you turn the handle. Drill a 1/2" hole in the passengers-rear corner of the airbox on the floor of it, under the air filter. (You guys DID seal the rest of the drain holes in the bottom of the airbox, didn't you?)

Now you leave the plug out, and whenever you're near water you reach under the bottom corner of the box, and stick that plug in there and crank the handle to seal the hole up. I leave mine on my keychain the rest of the time, to remind me when it's not installed. As another bonus, should your snorkel somehow become plugged (I had a 'friend' stuff an empty McDonalds cup into mine, sealing it off without me noticing right away)the engine will still run, although it will lack a lot of power.</font>
