Deckplate Mod and Snorkel?

So I have been wondering about this for a while? Can you actually have a snorkel with the deckplate modification? I know that the deckplate has the removable insert for it, and should be sealed with some sensor safe sealant, but will it really do anything? I have been on this forum for a bit and haven't seen any threads, or posts regarding this at all. I have looked on TTORA, this site, expedition and overland sites, and nothing. Any info from anyone, or just chat about it to see what people have to say.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I dont see why it wouldnt work. Just re install the deck plate cover, and it would be fine.

As a sailor I can verify that a properly installed deckplate with a well maintained gasket is indeed waterproof. Installed on the air box it probably wouldn't leak before getting to a depth that would require the truck's driver to be wearing scuba gear.

I would inspect the gasket and replace it if it's dried out before risking the truck. I give the ones on my boats an occasional daub of teflon grease.

Roland, sorry to go OT here, but what is a good grease to use on a boat? Will Mobil 1 be ok?
