Engine Snorkels — One of the best 4x4 upgrades
Installing an engine snorkel is one of the best upgrades you can make on your 4×4. Engine snorkels perform several important roles that deliver a better performance:
- Raising the level of air intake above the bonnet, reducing the amount of dust entering the engine and minimising the chance of water entering the engine while crossing rivers, etc.
- Providing cooler and cleaner air to enter the engine (by raising the level of air intake)
- Producing a ‘ram effect’ as the air is rammed into the engine with the forward motion of the vehicle rather than the engine having to such air in
Whether you’re into off roading, drive in dusty environments or simply want a better performance from your 4×4, an engine snorkel is likely to be ideal for you. At Ipswich Muffler & Mechanics, our mechanics have many years’ experience working with 4x4s and aftermarket performance parts and can advise you on the best products for your needs.
