What Is A Snorkel Or Raised Air Intake?

A snorkel is a device often used on an overland vehicle that moves the engine’s air intake from under the hood – usually from the wheel arches – to a position at roof height. The device is connected to the engine’s intake with a coupler and ran out of the engine compartment through a hole in the fender.

From here, the snorkel runs up along the A-pillar before terminating at a point near the top of the cabin. A watertight seal is produced at all joints in the system through the use of gaskets as well as silicone sealant.
