Hey guys, I am posting this here as the 2nd gen gets a ton more traffic and this tends to be more of a 2nd gen issue as far as I know. I need some help and advice from the experts.
I currently have the TRD Supercharger and AFE CAI with dry filter. I want to install a snorkel and plumb it into the CAI box. I know that physically it can be done with minimal work, Menametony has done it but he ran into issues of low boost when he did it 2 psi instead of the normal 5 psi. He found out that once he removed the lid off the CAI boost pressure returned to normal and he is currently running with the lid removed.
What I want to know is; are the snorkel's that restrictive to cause a drop in boost of that much? With that much of a drop in pressure is there a big risk of running lean which tends to lead to death for boosted engines? I need to water proof my intake better since i have already cut my inner fender and will be cutting it even more once I get my new bumpers. I have already gotten water into my intake while blitzing mud puddles but the filter/prefilter did a good job stopping it thankfully.
Lets hear what you guys think, experts chime in as both myself and Menametony would like to find an anwser to this.
Cheers guys, thanks.
