|The Safari SS146HFE 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 167 Series Toyota Hilux.
With the variety of engine options available in the Toyota Hilux, Safari took the decision to design a snorkel system specifically for the gutsy 3.0L 5L-E diesel engine powered Hilux. By doing so, Safari was successful in delivering an advanced snorkel system that exactly matched the specific requirements of this vehicle/engine combination.
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 the optimum air flow and the maximum user convenience (for other under-hood accessories), a special thick-walled rubber hose was engineered to closely couple the snorkel body to the standard air intake assembly. This specialized hose is specifically constructed for positive sealing at each end and is exceptionally stable to eliminate any possibility of restriction through collapse when under suction - and super tough to withstand high levels of under-hood vibration as experienced on rough corrugated outback tracks. The result is maximum engine performance and bullet-proof durability.
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 highly 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 genuine 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.
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 anodized body washers through to the tough plastic A-pillar inserts.
An accurately marked template is also provided to ensure that the installation of the snorkel body to panel work is as precise as possible.
