I have often thought this. The snorkel looks nice and butch but who goes that deep? Whereas the intake position on my 4x4s, which is at bonnet height internally, would be as deep as I'd ever want to go cos deeper than that and I'd want to escape the motor.


Do it right - use Hammerite

In fairness most raised air intakes are more to act as a pre cleaner in dusty conditions than to allow for wading up to the roof. Certainly they are not on my list of things to do to Ermintrude firstly because I wouldn't want the temptation of wrongly feeling invincible and secondly I have yet to see one that looks like it has been integrated into the design of the car, colour coded ones are better but most look added on if you know what I mean.

I decided years ago that the best way round was to pull the ram off and fit a pre-filter instead. This is great when going through locusts as the bugs collect in the pre-filter and are easily disposed off. Same with the dust. I always seem to be in the middle of a convoy with my Jimny and the pre-filter is wonderful for collecting dust.
The pre-filter saves air-cleaners by removing a lot of the dust and bits n pieces of bugs. It also makes a satisfying sound as it it generates a vortex by design to spin the dust and bugs out into the collector.

Pre-filters are available at Tractor shops and are only about $24 in Oz. Just take in the diameter of your pipe and walk out with a pre-filter.

If you are referring to the Suzuki Celerio, 3 cyl ultra-economical little beastie then well spotted Sir. With its' CVT transmission it is a neat little package. I did a shade over 50,000 k's from the day I bought it new until within 12 months of owner ship.

But I think that more likely you have spotted my 1982 Ford Falcon XD Sedan, powered by 351 cubic inch V8 :D It is, as the saying goes, "To die for". Matching numbers, all original. Paid $2100 for it and currently valued in the high $80-90,000.00's and I wouldn't sell it for less than $120,000.00 if that. The cool burble of that V8 makes me come alive. ;)

I've never been deep enough to really need a snorkel, but I love mine for peace of mind. It also sounds great and is a nice cheap DIY mod!
