Today I reworked my intake snokel using the 3" rubber elbow. It took less than an hour to do and it turned out great. Here's some pics of the process and a video doing wheelies.

im EFI no rejeting.

I changed from this



to this



Changing to this route lessens the bends teh air must take greatly. I used a 3" elbow and cut off the ends. Everything else is still 2" pipe.

He re routed the entire snorkel under the steering brace using the rubber 3" 90 instead of around it where he used a 2" 180* fitting(p-trap) It allows for more unrestricted airflow. All of the other fittings used in the project are 2". More info can be found here: mudinmyblood.com/brutesnorkal5.html

Just use the 3" rubber 90 and other 2" fittings and route it under the steering brace as pictured and you will be good to go.

I know many dudes who roll 31s but it still blows me away the size of those suckers. They are HUGE. Bigger than the tires on that suv in your driveway it appears!

I did my snorks that way from the getgo, works great!

I had the 3" elbow already. I just rerouted mine just a few days ago to go through the frame. It looks to be a lot less restrictive.
