Snorkel Diameter

What is the outer diameter on a Mantec Snorkel? I don't feel like dropping $400 bucks for something that looks pretty straightforward to do myself . . .

I think I could do a bang up job for around $200 . . .

Anyone have any advice on going with a larger diameter pipe - or in other words will I be strangling the engine with the same diameter as the Mantec . . .

3" I belive. I don't know of anyone complaing about power loss with a snorkel. You would loose most of your power high in RPM above 4500 RPM I would guess. Search around a bit this has been covered a bit and few people have made snorkels out of various things rather then paying $$$$ for a Mantec
Don't forget to Search first then ask questions later! The loose nut behind the wheel
