Safari Snorkel - SS13HF-HPC
The Safari SS13-HF-HPC snorkel is tough and stylish and has been designed to deliver a huge volume of the coolest and cleanest air possible into the stock air cleaner assembly of the Nissan Patrol.

With the variety of engine options available in the Nissan Patrol, and now with so many heavily modified vehicles around, Safari took the decision to develop a snorkel system that exceeded the air flow requirements of highly modified, turbocharged and intercooled 4.2L diesel engines.

In addition, due to the production variances of the GQ Patrol, the Safari SS13HF-HPC is designed specifically to suit those models that utilize a horizontal pre-cleaner as well as those who wish to discard their vertical pre-cleaner.

Close attention to the internal cross sectional profile and area, air velocity and flow path through each and every point along the entire length of the snorkel system ensures that the greatest air flow is achieved.

This of course applies to components that are not visible.

For example in order to achieve a highly durable coupling to the standard air entry hose, the snorkel outlet diameter is necked down slightly for a sturdy base to tighten the air entry hose clamp. Best of all, for those who would like even greater air flow for highly modified and very powerful engines, the snorkel outlet can be cut to reveal an even larger outlet diameter to feed air to a custom hose or duct.

This level of attention to detail results in the optimum air flow and the greatest component durability possible which translates to the greatest engine performance and the best possible fuel economy - for total peace of mind.

Huge air flow is but one aspect of the ultimate in snorkel design. The Safari air ram is designed to perform two very important roles. The most obvious is to funnel cool clean air into the snorkel body - but just as importantly, the Safari air ram acts as a higly efficient water separator to remove rain water from the incoming air stream - thus ensuring safe engine operation through even the most torrential tropical storms.

In addition, the detachable Safari air ram can be rotated to any position. This means great peace of mind for those who plan to travel in cold or high altitude conditions where heavy snow falls are anticipated. By rotating the air ram to face away from the prevailing wind/direction of motion, the air ram delivers additional protection from the choking effects of snow build-up inside the air intake.

The Safari Snorkel body and air ram are manufactured to the highest standards in durable, UV stable, cross linked polyethylene material. In addition, the substantial material wall thickness delivers huge physical strength to ensure that the snorkel breezes through the toughest off-road conditions on the planet.

Not unlike the UV rating of sunblock creams on humans; the UV number applied to Plastics being exposed to the sun's UV rays, indicates the level of protection and consequently, life of the snorkel. In order to deliver the 20 plus year life expected of Safari Snorkels, a specially compounded material is used to result in a rating of at least UV20. This contrasts markedly to other brand snorkels manufactured outside Australia. Even when these foreign snorkels use material sourced from quality major international suppliers, (such as Mobil Exxon), the finished product typically has a UV rating of only 8 - far short of the UV20 rating required for long snorkel service life.

The Safari Snorkel system is supplied as a complete and comprehensive system that includes every nut, bolt and bracket required for installation - right from robust zero-corrosion stainless steel studs, self-locking nyloc nuts and large diameter stainless steel body washers through to the tough plastic A-pillar inserts.

An accurately marked template is also provided to eliminate any guess work and to ensure that the installation of the snorkel body to panel work is as precise as possible.

Breathe Easy - The genuine Safari Snorkel is positively sealed and delivers a continuous and cooler supply of air for the best engine protection on the planet.
