SNORKEL CARE: This product is intended to provide clean, dry air to the engine but does
not necessarily mean the vehicle can exceed the OE manufacturer’s recommended engine
water line depth. There are many considerations to make when increasing water line
depth and a snorkel is just one component. Snorkels are intended to be used only for
infrequent and accidental water crossings. The real benefits of a snorkel are dust
reduction into the engine especially in dry, arid climates. This benefit is increased
with the installation of a pre-filter (sold separately). The pre-filter is very effective and
can fill up quickly in extremely dry and dusty situations. The other benefit of the snorkel is
to take in higher air which is cleaner than the air a normal airbox takes in at engine level. In
extremely dusty or arid areas you may need to clean the snorkel and or pre-filter often. The
snorkel and pre-filter should be cleaned with mild soap and water only.
IT IS AN INSTALLERS RESPONSIBILITY TO VERIFY ALL COMPONENTS, AND
PARTICULARLY THE TEMPLATE IS CORRECT, BEFORE STARTING ANY PART OF
THE SNORKEL INSTALLATION. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A CUSTOM INSTALLATION
AND YOU MAY WANT TO MODIFY FOR YOR PARTICULAR INSTALLTION AND
ADDITIONAL ITEMS MAY BE NEEDED TO INSTALL.
(CHECK TEMPLATE AGAINST SNORKEL BODY
AND CHECK SNORKEL FOR FITMENT BEFORE
CUTTING OR INSTALLING)
