Snorkel ????????????????

I am building an '87 burb. I was looking into making a snorkel system, but wanted to see if there were ready made ones.

Or maybe how someone made one and how it worked. Thanks.

The motor is a 350 thottlebody.

Re: Snorkel ????????????????

<font face="Times New Roman">
<font color=green>I've never seen a ready made one for the Chevies in person, but in the movie "Dante's Peak" there was a Burb that had one. Never really bothered looking around to see if it was a ready made deal, but at least you know that there's probably been one out there at some point... A guy did a write up here on ORC of a custom snorkel that he did on his S-10, but the thing is a hideous creation that looks just awful. Just my opinion, no offense to the guy who built it.[img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Here's a crappy pic of the Burb -

Yeah that was a bad [censored] burb. i liked the way that looked. Well we own a Salvageyard so i know we can build one. i just didn't feel like going throught the trouble if they made one.

Thanks shaggy

Re: Snorkel ????????????????

Here is a link to ARB's snorkel on a Toyota. I'm not sure if they make one for a chevy, but it's worth looking up.

Re: Snorkel ????????????????

I dont think anyone makes one, but if you ran a tube from the carb ring to wherever... Anywho, I'm either going to run a snorkel up the side of my exocage, or through the firewall somewhere. Good luck whichever...

Ehhh... Yeah that snorkle was butt ugly, it had a very unnecesary 180* bend, but what works works eh?
