The the inside of the spare tire rim It's closer to the main battery too. The Oddysey PC2150 fits inside the OEM "full size" spare tire on the 18" rim. Just need to fab a mount.

So rather than driving everywhere with an expensive wind drag that might never get used, I'm going for the tarp or water bra option. Anyway, that's just my opinion at this point in time.
BobT what more butchering will the WK2 need than any other 4x4?, every vehicle that a snorkel is available needs holes cut in body work.
We are yet to see the snorkel design, path or cost for the WK2.
Airflow have said they can fit a snorkel to the WK2 with out cutting through the sub frame and still gain a 10-15% improvement in performance. If you don't need or want a snorkel that's fine!, but please don't scare others with words like "butchering" when there is no evidence the WK2 snorkel will require any more body modification than other current 4x4 models,
We've all been complaining about no after market accessories for the WK2, now here is a company that is willing to make a snorkel for the WK2, so let's get behind them!.
If you don't want or need one that's fine, but please don't frighten others off needlessly

When I spoke with Michael from airflow his comment was they would not be going through the monocoque chassis as this created another set of problems so they have found a route that has a couple more bends in it than standard but still gives a small increase in air to the system.

Thanks again for your time .

Sparky60

please the more enquiries airflow get the more chance we have of something being produced.

I'd be happy as long as it doesn't reduce airflow. Any increase is a bonus.

This was on AJOR,
Saw the main man at Airflow Snorkels this morning. Basically, they require orders of 150+ prior to making the tooling. The tooling alone is around $25K.BTW ; they are working on a replacement air filter to complement the snorkel. Cheers, Craig.

So if your interested, send them an email, we need every one we can get to make this happen

Hi guys, Airflow have received 40 requests for snorkels so far, it's a good start but we need to get 150 so keep them coming, we need to support manufactures who are willing to make accessories for the WK2, so send them an email or contact them on face book. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD

Don't forget to repost this info on other forums you might be on.
Can some one on a caravan forum put this snorkel info up, as I believe a lot of people are buying WK2's as tow vehicles.
Cheers Yoda.

Re: WK2 Snorkel

Gidday again

this is just in from Michael at airflow



I have posted that we have started making the kit on Face book.
We have had about 40 responses.


So we have started making the snorkel kit. Should have a shape shortly.
I am doing some performance simulations to see what is possible at the moment
Will talk to you and a couple of other what it will look like soon.
This will cover the diesel.
We will need to check the petrol version to see if needs a different kit?


We are trying to get the web site fixed . Some nice person has hacked into the site.


Keep in contact
Please put this on to the site you are posting on please.




Kind regards Michael

great effort guys sounds like its happening

Re: WK2 Snorkel

Hi Guys,

Please can someone closer than me with a V6 Petrol make their car available for the development?!

I would love to but it's really not feasible with me being on the Gold Coast!

Kev.

I sent Airflow a message through Facebook to night asking how they were going with the snorkel, this was Michael's response. "Hi PaulWe are well under way with the kitWe are looking for another test vehicle if you know any body that could helpWe need it for two day Contact me for further detailairflowsnorkels@me.com". Any one able to give up their GC for the cause?,
