Airflow Snorkel for Suzuki Samurai
Why a Samurai snorkel? Cause you never know how deep that creek is.... and once you are in, it is too late. Taking in water through the air intake can hydraulic an engine which leads to bent and thrown rods. We know this as we had our engine blow up on the way back from Rubicon once after taking an unexpected deep drop.
Picture of our Zuk in the Tank Traps of the 1997 Four Wheeler magazine Top Truck Challenge. Our vehicle was very well waterproofed and featured in several technical articles in Four Wheeler about waterproofing.
It also came in handy during the 97' Top Truck Challenge hosted by Four Wheeler magazine. We found ourselves in a swamp 4' deep. The snorkel saved the day and our engine. Not to mention.... the judging staff thought the snorkel just plain looked awesome!
On top of that, many people experience power gains as the snorkel pipes in cool exterior air for your engine to breathe and also produce a ram air effect.... similar to what a supercharger does for an engine. Better mileage, more power.
This ain't no cheap backyard snorkel that sucks in rain and snaps on every tree branch. Our Samurai snorkels are made from UV stable Polyethylene. They are super strong..... many a low hanging branch lost its battle with our tough snorkel on trail. They look great and really help spice up the look of your vehicle. Want to see heads turn as you drive by? Try running a snorkel! Airflow snorkels are also designed to channel the heaviest rain out of the breather arm before it gets to your air filter.

If you like to splash in water every weekend, or only once a year, this is the ultimate hydrolock protection for your Samurai's engine. We run snorkels on our rigs, we believe in them, they've saved our engines a number of times. This is good getcha-home engine insurance.
Airflow took the decision to design a snorkel system that exceeded the air flow requirements of the gutsy 1.6L engine and the snorkel kits work great with 1.6, Diesel, Vortec, Toyota, or any other upgraded engine you may have installed. Indeed the genuine Airflow Snorkel system is designed to breathe freely in order to deliver the greatest air flow performance possible for even highly modified engines and with the best protection on the planet.
This of course applies to components that are not visible. For example a tough straight-shot duct is an integral part of the Airflow snorkel body and in conjunction with the smooth bore, tough wall inlet hose, forms a high flow positive connection to the standard air cleaner assembly. The result is maximum engine performance and the best possible fuel economy within the tight confines of the inner guard and engine bay.

Huge air flow is but one aspect of the ultimate in snorkel design. The Airflow air ram is designed to perform two very important roles. The most obvious is to funnel cool clean air into the snorkel body - but just as importantly, the Airflow air ram acts as a highly efficient water separator to remove rain water from the incoming air stream - thus ensuring safe engine operation through even the most torrential tropical storms.
In addition, the detachable Airflow air ram can be rotated to any position. This means great peace of mind for those who plan to travel in cold or high altitude conditions where heavy snow falls are anticipated. By rotating the air ram to face away from the prevailing wind/direction of motion, the air ram delivers additional protection from the choking effects of snow build-up inside the air intake.The Airflow Snorkel body and air ram are manufactured to the highest standards in durable, UV stable, cross linked polyethylene material. In addition, the substantial material wall thickness delivers huge physical strength to ensure that the snorkel breezes through the toughest off-road conditions on the planet.
Extremely high quality construction!
