    Default Gen. II Tacoma Airflow America Snorkel

    Howdy all Gen II Tacoma Owners,
    I’m thinking about pulling the trigger on an Airflow America Snorkel. Here’s the press release on the new product.

    1357613518_tacoma_snorkel_press_release_image_zps1ff33b6b.jpg

    Anyone have any experience with these. Thoughts, opinions…?

    Thanks,
    dd

    Just read the whole release and went to their site and cant find them anywhere.

    The possible +2 in fuel mileage is interesting....

    I am getting pretty close to pulling the trigger on one of these as well. If you PM the vendor "Expeditioneers" through TacomaWorld.com, they're doing an introductory price offer on them right now (not sure how long that it'll last). I won't post the price here, but it's a pretty decent discount.

    There's a long thread going on TacomaWorld about them. I haven't read the entire thread, but I'm pretty sure a couple guys that have already installed them have posted comments there.

    I didn't realize there was a possibility of a fuel mileage improvement.

    i'm a fan...taller than the safari's but you get used to it...i have a prefilter coming soon that will bring the height down a bit and help for dusty/snowy conditions..but great product..





    as far as gas mileage is concerned...i'm back to where i was with my volant CAI with ram scoop...which is around 2mpg improvement over stock..so i'd agree with the statement

    went from the volant setup to stock while i was gathering parts and i couldn't wait to get a cold air setup back on the truck..

    Which prefilter(s) are compatible with the snorkel connection on top? I've seen Donaldson and Sy-Klone mentioned before with the Safari's; not sure if either of those brands are compatible with this one. But I agree, the snorkel seems really tall, and the head itself looks a lot bigger than the Safari.

    Any 3.5" filter will fit.


    Here is some info on the snorkel and hat.

    What I dont understrand is why it is neccessary to remove the fender flare. This seems like an extra unneccessary step. When I installed my Safari Snorkel on my second gen Tacoma, I could just pull/bend the fender liner back sufficiently to gain access???

    Nice product though! Glad to see it hit the market!

    Really? I have not noticed any impact with my Safari Snorkel. I suppose I have never really tried to analyze it down to that level of detail.
