The Power Ram from Maradyne.... is $360!!! Shit for that much I'd just buy a Mantec or Southdown. But they do give a discount for quantity. haha

I have been thinking about this a bit yesterday and did some searching and found a source for the air ram that arb/safari use on their snorkels, very reasonable at around $50. It is my impression you don't need a precleaner unless you live somewhere sandy or dusty that would really clog a filter anyways. I also found an aluminum tube site as well that seems like a good price comparison if you were to shop close to home. Finally, after looking at the link to the garage hose there which is 3" and stainless as well. Not a real expert but seems you could take the aluminum tube and paint it black or leave it. The pipe might set you back 25 to 30, 50 for the air ram, and say about 30-40 for the ducting. So for about 100-120 you have a almost complete system. My question is how to finish the look as you cut into the fender, I personally like the way the Southdown looks, any ideas?

Thanks, very helpful. You can also get al tubes off ebay for cheap and no cutting charge. I still wonder if anyone knows a company that has a complete filter in the top portion so that I can run the snorkle straight to the turbo? Pendy??

It is pretty typical for some machinery to do this, but it has to be large for necessity. I can not see how it could work on an off road vehicle as it would be prone to damage and/or interfere with vision.

I checked with one of our vendors. Aluminum pipe @ 2.5" and SCH 40 (0.203" wall thickness) is $120 plus freight to us for a 20' joint. I'll cut it here gratis for anybody if there's enough interest. Not looking to charge anybody over my cost for it, so if 4 or 5 people want an aluminum pipe let me know.

Also, if you want stainless I can get a quote for that too.

Hope it helps.

Dust and dirt are the diesel engines worst enemy. A prefilter and a normal filter is the best setup. Even a dust throwing snorkel head is a sort of prefilter.

Got interest on Aluminum pipe. Anybody else want 4 or 5 feet of it. We're talking $30 plus shipping.

I'll take a chunk, how much is it? I'm thinking I need the ARB snorkel top & some tubing to run into the underhood canister filter, or does the ARB top incorporate a filter?

I hear they are precleaners and you still need to use the existing filter. $30 for 4+ (saw kerf) feet of pipe plus whatever our shipping is. If you give me a zip code I can get you exact prices.

That means we need 1 more person.

Mike, got ya from before.
It's me, you, Michael, and 1 more...

That means the better part of 5 feet from a 20' section. If you know you want a specific size I can cut it to that for you, if not, I'll just wack it every 5 and worry about the saw kerf later.

Also, Pendy, you have any drawings of what you did (or a quick explanation)? I don't want to muck it up.
I also like the southdown fender gasket. I can only find pictures for a Disco one I did some time back. I used the southdown gasket theme and a homemade snorkel head. The permatech liner guys run when I show up with work for them.

Trying to ressurect this as I am going to try to do this within the next two weeks.
Jesse~
If you still have 4 or 5 feet left I will take it off your hands

If and when I get my hands on the tubing, where can I get it bent? I was told by a few friends midas or any exhaust place will do it, but will they just let me walk in and do a couple bends? I think the angle of the roll cage after the vertical part is 72 degrees. I was thinking of one bend at the bottom and one at the top to attach the snorkel head to. I like the idea seen in another disco snorkel where the owner took door or window seals and sealed the fender cut. My final hangup is how to mount the snorkel under the fender/engine bay. I am going to order one or two of these http://www.evansuk.ltd.uk/images/1451b.jpg . They are about 30 bucks from the uk. Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
