Snorkel installation

Postby robgt22 » Wed Jan 31, 2018 9:31 am

Hello folks, I've been wanting to install a snorkel but something is stopping me, I don't know how to prevent water from going into my intake. I've read that even with the stock intake, the engine sucked water and hydrolocked it and I don't want that to happen, the reason for the snorkel is because when we're mudding, mud gets everywhere, so I would prefer to have my intake a little higher and out of problems, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to drive in the rain, so I just want to hear some suggestions and what I should/shouldn't do. Thanks in advance

I'm Keen on adding one too. But I am yet to find one anywhere. Would love to see just a picture. I'm sure there is a design out there that would prevent water. Especially if you had something as pictured at the top of it

That dust pre filter is found on many forklifts.
Probably be had cheaply on Ebay.

The gent I bought my CJ5 from builds WILD mud and trail rigs. He very much dislikes snorkel intakes, as water rooster tails can easily reach them.
If a serious, off road only, and there is no concern of interior noise, he suggested routing your actual intake inlet under the dash, as high as possible.
Then there is almost ZERO chance of mud or water ingestion.

Won't work for me, as I refuse to listen to turbo whine directly in the pass. compartment.

For those who know me. the turbo is finally happening this year.

This is how I ended up building mine, I got the prefilter housing from a 4x4 accessories shop, in total I spent around $25
