Snorkel question????

I have been against snorkels as a whole because normally they are too small and cause belt failure and the intake one causes air/fuel issues plus performance suffers.

I have a 08 Brute and I am gonna snorkel it, surely not going to use a kit available now from anyone.

My question to anyone who has done some snorkeling, any reason not to use a large diameter tubing with a smooth bore? Less bends or joints and I am gonna use 3" tubing

I've snorkled my 08Brute Todd, and have no problems. I have the EHS lid on it, as well as the snorkles, with the UNI filter, Muzzy and MSD and it runs clean.(I got my MSD from you)

I used a V-Force clutch cover, as my engine brake was machined off by VFJ, and I got rid of the rest of it. The rest of the snorkle is 2" ABS, and I used K&N prefilter material to close off the ends.

I haven't had any belt issues and I bag the shite out of that thing.

Actually gave this some thought. Is the theory that the intake size is too small. This would pretain more to Teryx vs Brutes but I know the Teryx intake I think is only around 2.5" I believe from the factory intake I took off. Would it also not help to be mounted up and out of the cab area. I would assume better airflow vs down low mounting factory location(or over the racks in case of the brute). There must be some way to measure air flow as well.

I have a device to measure airflow, actually forgot I had it until you mentioned it.

I want to do something different.

I guess 2" snorkels are like old men who smoke. Some have good luck with it and some don't.

That is why I want to go bigger and get the intake air just right.

I know ideally you need your intake large and choke it back down on the end like the actual intake size is.
