  • To Snorkel or Not To Snorkel

    Am heading off to Nth. Queensland comes June and undecided to fit a snorkel or not.
    Fitted a Safari Snorkel to my previous Nissan Pathfinder so I know they can increase noise levels.
    what are other's thoughts on this as once it's on it's on.

    If you are going to be doing water crossings it's a no-brainer

      I'd highly recommend you invest the $650 or so and get a snorkel fitted (non Toyota). Peace of mind for water crossings, and will assist in reducing dust intake with the higher mounted air intake. Most importantly, it looks cool! :P

      Remember to also seal your air box, and diff breathers aren't a bad idea either...

        I had the TJM Wedgetail Snorkel fitted. I did have thoughts of fitting it myself as I do most jobs but I could not face cutting holes into the panel work.
        Wind noise is minimal and I think it blends in nicely.
        It does not have the Meerkat Syndrome. (my thoughts)
        Cost $668 fitted. TJM Dandenong Vic.

            Looks great! Did TJM charge extra for the wedge tail air ram?

          All supplied and fitted as is $668
          Two other TJM stores quoted $750
          For the standard head one store quoted $612 plus $150 for the Wedgetail head.
          Apparently they buy them in kits but for the Fortuna the Wedgetail does not come in kit form as there are not enough Fortunas out there to warrant the supplier making up kits to suit.
          I respectfully rest my case!
          TJM Dandenong megastore Vic. Apparently keep several
          different types of heads to suit most 4x4s and will trim them down to suit.
          Anyway they did a nice job.

            It's a must if you are going to do things like the Tele Track etc.

              A little bit of a hijack I know, but the right thread - when fitting the snorkel I had the single hole in the bottom of the airbox plugged, but I left the drain-hole with it's crude "valve" flap. Is that correct, or should both holes be blanked off?
