AirFlow snorkel installed on WK







I'm happy but there is one issue presents. Radio antenna interferes with the snorkel installation because Australians made it for the WH without antenna on the fender. Have you any suggestions about relocation? I'm thinking about replacing of quarter window to European one with antenna in the glass. Another option is relocation to the left fender.

Anybody knows another solutions?

Re: AirFlow snorkel installed on WK

Re: AirFlow snorkel installed on WK

Thinking of adding a snorkle to go with your 22" reps?

It looks good, I had similar questions about the air box but I figured for the price it better be legit and didnt ask. My only fear now, on older carbonated cars you can dunk the entire vehicle under water following a proper snorkle install and water proofing a couple connectors... the last thing I would want to do us dunk the pcm, pdc and tipm under water along with likely water intrusion into the cabin...

That said we had a number of members loose a motor this last winter season so some help will obviously be better than none.

Again great mod, it looks good!
