Lenny any more thoughts on this snorkel??? I too was surprised when i saw this and thought about removing it completely and replacing it with a hose pointing down towards the intercooler area
I had a thought that the mountune replacemnent airbox lid for the RS may fit the airbox on the diesel,
Im not 85% sure which means i wont be purchasing it to try, unless i can pick one up second hand or i can confirm the part number for the airbox base to be the same. Because on the inside of the airbox lid their are 3 lines with 3 different part numbers, two of them say diesel followed by the part number and one says petrol.
But which petrol engine is it compliant with? I have yet to find out.
I had thought of purchasing some fittings from JJC Racing to bring the rectangular tip of the airbox to a round port to fit a custom snorkle followed by another mesh wide scoop on the outer end then fit lower in the front end, but my daily route to work is subject to some flooding when heavy rain occours,
So this is detering me from doing anything with it.
But their is a noticeable increase in sound and torque when the slam plate is removed.
Maybe fit a mesh port to the slam panel just above the stock induction port location, would increase flow and remain high up from the road.
