In addition to coming with directions there’s a great post over at TheNewX.org on how install the snorkel. So I won’t cover details on the install here.
I did mine without removing the fender. It wasn’t bad at all… I feel like removing the fender would create a lot of unnecessary work. I’ve also been told by those who have that the foam/goo they used at the edges is a total PITA to get off.
While I had the fender liner off and the air box out I also…
- Went ahead and removed the rest of the intake silencer and sealed the factory air box inlet to the snorkel with a polymer sealant.
- Cleaned the K&N air filter.
- Cleaned the MAF sensor.
- Removed the grill and bumper fascia. Bed lined the bumper and painted the grill.
- Touched up bed liner on the rockers and rear bumper.
I hope to get it out next weekend and compare intake temps to those I’ve been logging without a snorkel the past week.
