    Default Safari Snorkels

    So does anybody have any advice on making the internal plumbing work on 1st Gen X with the Safari Snorkel? I've already got the holes drilled but now I'm trying to figure out the best solution and looking for suggestions. Thanks!

    I checked into that but they didn't quite find what I needed. I ended up doing some major trimming to the inner clip and got one of these to complete the intake.

    That must be how you get a square peg into a round hole.

    You can read all the stories and watch all the videos you want, but there's no substitute for just getting out there and doing it.

    Try Lowes or HomeDepot in the plumbing dept. There are different sized rubber boot/fittings to try out.

    I thought of that exact line when I saw it in the store. Then I though....Heat Gun!

    I actually used the rubber fittings and hose clamps to weatherproof the connector above.

    Here are a few pictures....



    I did the baffle bypass too.



    I still need to attach the snorkel at the windshield and reinstall the splash guard.
