    Here’s mine done. Good enough for now. Might look into different snorkel heads/intakes later.

    Super simple. One 90* that one end is 4” and the other is 3”. The 4” comes off the stock air box then a 3” aluminum tube to another one of those 90* silicone coupler as above. The 4” end slides over the snorkel head.

    Love snorkel coming out of the top of the fender instead of the side. Very nice.

    Looks good! Hidden in plain sight almost.

    How high is the botton edge of the intake off the fender? I'd be curious in a good rain storm if it'd be able to suck water off the body work and have an issue since I don't think the ram intake design would function at intake vacuum speeds.

    I'd say we can be dangerous enough to bend our own tubing but you gotta replicate that honeycomb head. Does the mesh/comb you created separate from the actual head for easy painting?
