Mantec NAS V8 snorkel -> 300 Tdi?

Is it difficult to mate a Mantec NAS V8 snorkel (the style that comes out of the driver side vent on the top of the wing) to a 300 Tdi? Because the 300 Tdi snorkels come out of the passenger side fender, right? I prefer the one that comes out of the vent on the wing, but I have a 300 Tdi.

I know I've seen 300 Tdi trucks with that setup, like this one:

I used the V8 one - all you have to do is rotate the air filter canister around so the intake faces the driver's side of the truck. It makes for a snaking hose route unless you modify the wing-top piece, but its no worse than the v8 set up - and the turbo diesel is probably less sensitive to intake plumbing design than an NA gas motor.

The other advantage of the V8 NAS one is that it comes with brackets to attach the snorkel upright to the roll bar instead of brackets to attach it to the windshield frame.

So if I don't have a rollbar, I will need different brackets to mount it to the windshield frame?

Thanks, Jim!
