Sidekick Snorkel Answers

OK, I've had several people ask about the Safari Snorkel on my Sidekick. Here's the deal. The air box on the 1.6/16 valve is in the left-front corner of the engine compartment. The air intake is routed back over the fender, to the back of the engine compartment, there it passes through the sheet-metal, and is routed FORWARD to just behind the headlight, between the two layers of sheet metal.

When you install the snorkel, you remove all the piping inside the fender, and cut an 85mm hole [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] through the fender, and take the intake straight out and up. You still use the stock air box, and stock air filter. Now, Safari says not to change the air filter, but I've put a K&N flat panel filter in there. It seems to work fine.

Here's where you get one: Rocky Road Outfitters and this should be thought of as CHEAP INSURANCE, that will pay for itself the first time you dip it in the creek.

Pretty shallow creeks wherever they grow that red rock you're playing on... [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Hah, that's funny Fastone! It was a creek along SteelBender at Moab. I went in right up to the top of the hood. She woulda been a goner without the snorkle! You could hear me on the CB after that, yelling "SNARKLE SNARKLE" [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Sidekick Snorkel Answers

I have an article with pics on fitting my Safari snorkel on my website, look under mods/snorkel. Some people looking at the spec seem to conclude that because it is made of plastc (ABS) it might be vulnerable to damage. However it is VERY tough.
