Can you run a cold air intake and a snorkel?

A snorkel is a form of a cold air intake. It is pulling cold air from outside the engine compartment. You can’t run an open air CAI inside the engine compartment with a snorkel or you defeat the purpose of the snorkel.

Does a snorkel improve air intake?

A snorkel is able to draw in cleaner, uncontaminated air because of its elevated position. Without this, your car takes in air that’s closer to the engine and therefore full of dust and grime. This cleaner air enhances engine performance and efficiency.

Do you need an air filter if you have a snorkel?

you really don’t need an air filter…as long as you don’t care about your engine, and can afford to rebuild/buy a new engine on a regular basis.

What happens if water gets in cold air intake?

Do Cold Air Intakes Let Water In? A cold air intake filter can become wet, but only at a mildly damp level. Your engine can suffer from hydrolock if the filter gets wet enough, which can hinder the flow of air. If the filter is wet, it would be best to dry it or replace it as soon as possible.

Does snorkel help engine cooling?

The snorkel ensures the air coming into the engine is clean and cool – keeping out any particles that would get in the way of the engine doing its job – as well as taking the strain away from your air filters.

What does an air intake snorkel do?

Snorkels are installed onto the air intake, creating a seal to keep water out of the engine while allowing the air intake to keep taking in air. The snorkel pipe that runs out of the air intake then travels through the hood and up the passenger side windshield post where it is securely mounted.

What’s the point of a snorkel?

By breathing through the snorkel, you’ll avoid swallowing lungfuls of water and emptying your dive tank. A snorkel can help you assess dive conditions from the surface. If you’re on a dive boat, you could get into the water first while wearing your mask and snorkel to assess the current and level of visibility.

Do snorkels increase fuel economy?

A snorkel will usually improve the breathing of an engine because it is taking in cleaner, cooler air than it would be if taking air in from the engine bay, and because of that the fuel consumption will be improved.

How deep can you go with a snorkel?

With snorkel masks, you can descend up to six feet underwater without issue. However, your snorkel mask may fill up with CO2 and make it difficult to breathe. As a result, you shouldn’t go deeper than six feet or even stay in the water for more than 25-30 minutes.
