    Looks like it would have the same issue as the uptop snorkel. Like drinking through a coffee stirrer.

    15% off after raising the price is about as slimy as it gets. This company is going to run itself into the ground at this rate. They treat us like fools if they believe in this bs marketing tactic.

    Would someone from uptop like this Micah or Drew guy I found on here care to reply?

    Why are you complaining about a sale? If the price was raised specifically to nullify the discount of the sale it would be slimy, this isn’t.

    You are correct. The price was raised just before a sale was announced. What does that make them?

    So is Coca Cola.

    Are we just naming businesses now? Or focusing on false equivalents?

    So called new and improved one looks even more douchebaggy than the original.

    Just got back from the dyno runs. Here are the data sheets. If you have this snorkel and supercharger or turbo, I'd like to hear your comments.

    This is 3 of 3 pulls and a combined chart. Very identical.

    The Red line is without the snorkel, and the other two colors are with?

    No. Each pull (3 of them) has their own color. The upper line is the torque and the lower one is the hp. So for each pull, it's the same color. These were with the test snorkel fully piped.
    The previous snorkel produced (as sold) produces this dyno chart below. Obviously it seriously constrains the engine, but way more when it's boosted like ours are. I'll post up what my baseline was without any snorkel to help.

    @virginiamarine, which indicates a significant improvement with the new product design. That's cool.

    To give you a baseline, this dyno chart is without anything connected to the airbox (no snorkel). I did have an issue with this and that is that this particular dyno is brand new and it consistently showed lower hp and torque across the board with other vehicles (approx. 10% according to tech). And, I believe him because he is a tuner and he knows his sh!t. lol. Also, this was a test tune, so lot's of variable, but close enough for our situation I think.

    yes, I agree. I think it would actually be even better if the tubing were increased also in the fender (the fender tube remained the same).

    Yeah definitely improved, but still looks like it needs more flow. Are you able to data log? The MAF reading at WOT would confirm exactly how much airflow you’re getting. I think that’s a better data point than a dyno in this situation.

    It actually looks worse than the safari/dobinsons now, which is actually an impressive feat.
