WK2 Snorkel
 
Hi all
Have just returned home from Dromana in victoria where airflow vector have had a good look at the wk2 grand cherokee . Michael from airflow says they can make a snorkel work for this vehicle, but now need genuine expression of interest before they will tool up to make it. Please contact them via email if you are serious about a snorkel for your grand.. info@airflowvector.com . They will have some more information on their web site and facebook with in the next week.
thanks for your time

Are the petrol and diesel air intakes the same? Will the one snorkel work on both engines?

I'd like to know this too!

Send airflow an email and ask, the more that do the more likely they will make one

Looks like the air box is at the front left corner for both petrols and the diesel
V8
http://goo.gl/kFT96
V6
http://goo.gl/q5JhI
CRD
http://goo.gl/mNHJR

Looking in the front left corner of my CRD there doesn't seem to be much room behind the headlight to get an intake hose through the front left guard.

The CRD also has an electrical box just behind the air box that the petrols don't have (could also be a 2012 vs 2011 build difference). Front RHS is also a little different between the petrol and diesel

Looking in the engine bay and at the 3.6L V6 image it might be possible to come through the LH guard into the area at the bottom left of the windscreen and then come over the top of the shock tower. The petrols could possibly keep an airbox in the same place, but it would need to be redesigned (sort of turned upside down). The CRD would probably have to get rid of the air box, but would need decent filtering on the snorkel.

If you could get rid of the air box then you might be able to get a smallish 2nd battery under the bonnet.

Airflow say they can do it, and will if they get the numbers, so every one should send them an email

thanks Yoda
your right the more enquiries airflow get the more chance there is of production. they can answer the questions better than we can.

I dropped them a line the other day, and being in Melb offered to drop by with my Jeep if needed.
