I just put a submarine snorkel on my 08 teryx and i can't figure out what to do about adjusting my carbs. Anyone have suggestions?

Actually you should not have to adjust it all.

Snorkeling is a very hard thing to get right.

The tube should be large at least 3" and the opening on the end should be the same as the original intake opening so the right amount of vacuum is there to operate the vacuum controlled slides correctly and meter fuel right.

The vehicle is not supposed to know the snorkel is there.

What size pipe did you use? If its 2" pvc, I'd guess your jetting is off.

Edit
Here is a link to help based on symptoms

I would not be surprised if it is running lean, I know it sounds weird.
