    I made my snorkel work with the factory intake which seemed to work pretty good last night. This morning I was really romping on the throttle to see if my butt dyno could feel a difference and it sucked the factory intake from the inside starving the engine and keeping me from going any faster

    So now I'm calling to see who can bend some piping for me :facepalm:

    Not to raise a ruckus, but that looks like the snorkel isn't allowing enough air into the engine.

    Important question here: was the angle of the factory intake to the fender modified at all? If so I can see how this would happen, but if you haven't modified the OEM piece that imploded, I would be suspicious of the snorkel itself not letting enough air in.

    This could be the reason why the Safari 05-15 snorkel is much larger in diameter than the popular Safari Hilux retrofit.

    Just a thought...

    EDIT: Also, could be how you have the snorkel connected in the fender. Many factors there...

    It's undeniable that the snorkel isn't big enough but the location never changed. I swapped it for 3in exhaust and it runs better and my mpg isn't shit now lol

    I've always thought about one of these, but I don't really go offroad, so I would mostly just look like a poser.
