Snorkel (raised air intake) top?

Hi. I'm looking to have a local muffler guy make me a snorkel while he's replacing my exhaust. However, I can't figure out where to buy a top for the snorkel (preferably in Canada). I've looked at donaldson.com and see these two PDFs:

http://www.donaldson.com/en/engine/s...ary/000207.pdf
http://www.donaldson.com/en/engine/s...ary/055471.pdf

However, I imagine that anything from there is going to be a lot more expensive, and maybe the wrong application, compared to a Mantec or Safari top. It's hard to know where to begin.

I have a 200tdi and the Donaldsons are rated for airflow; however, I don't know what my airflow needs are for a 200tdi.

If anyone has some help for me on where to get a top and what kind of top to get, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks a lot,
- Andrew.

Thanks for the cryptic and possibly useful, possibly useless response

I have done some calling around and found out that North Shore Offroad ( http://www.nsor.com ) can get me a Safari top for between $C96-112, which is I guess par for the course but also a lot of money for a little bit of plastic.

A friend of mine suggested just having the muffler shop bend the pipe forward and flare it a bit and not bother with buying a top. Is that a Bad Idea for any reason? I could just put a grille on it and be done with it, and could always buy another top down the road if I see someone selling a used one or something like that.

Thanks,
- Andrew.

Hey !

Hi Andrew !

Glad to see you rig is back on the road. How was fixing that engine ? Was it badly damaged ? Hopefully I will get to see you this winter off road in some of the events.

Well my truck is "back on the road" in the sense that it's fixed, but I haven't picked it up yet from the mechanic's. It's getting a cat-back (in a manner of speaking) stainless exhaust system this afternoon and then hopefully I'll be driving it home.

I ended up sending it to a mechanic's shop about 6 weeks ago because it wasn't quite running and I didn't have the time or expertise to finish it off. My dad died and the truck was at his farm so I felt that I needed to move it, so I just spent more money than I wanted to spend having someone else do the work.

It's been off the road for 5 months so I almost forget even owning it It will be good to get it back. How's your vehicle coming along?

I'll talk to the muffler guys this afternoon and show them exactly what I want. Then I'll see whether they want to do the work and whether they're the right people to do it.

- Andrew.

Hey, thanks a lot. I just found his contact info on the site and sent him an email. If you WANT to get rid of yours, let me know. Otherwise, if you'd rather keep it, I'll wait to hear back from SafariRover.

Thanks,
- Andrew.

You could get a pre-cleaner. There are a variety of brands, but they do cost a bit.

The Southdown ram tops are indestructable and pretty cheap, http://stores.ebay.ca/Southdown-4x4-Products A friend just bought they two plastic pieces from Southdown and made the rest locally. Saves a lot of money and makes a very nice and strong snorkel.

If you are using a ram, then you want it separate as there are times it should be turned around.

SafariRover has a mushroom top listed in his new shipment in the fleamarket sections (or was it vendor's loft?)

I have a Centri brand pre-cleaner on the intake of my snorkel, It's an aluminum and stainless steel construction that is available in a wide range of intake tube diameters. I have one made for a 3" diameter snorkel tube since I was using some scrap C-130 fuel line tubing to build my snorkel. I think it cost me around $150.

In addition to the Centri mentioned by Jack, http://www.centriprecleaner.com/, there's also:
http://www.sy-klone.com/
http://www.enginaire.com/
I'm sure there are others, but you can probably find local dealers of at least one of these in your area.
Check heavy equipment dealers, that's the most common type of dealer who carries them.
