    Ok so I have a snorkel on my truck... the snorkel isnt water tight but I would like to get that replaced with a sealed unit....

    so I hear that a tbi unit will fit ontop of a holley... anyone have any recommendations on what vehicles work best?
    I will goto the junkyard and buy the piece to the carb, the tubing and the filter box.....

    here is my current setup...
    3" metal spacer from a G series van
    stock cleaner cut
    home depot parts to fender/snorkel

    this weekend I would have hit this hole if I knew my intake was sealed.....
    you can see it wasnt deep until it just dropped.....

    I basically idled to the guys truck.. and he stepped on my bumper to hookup the tow strap....

    he took on water in the cab... truck stayed running but we checked in the trail and he had milk...... so trailside oil change in order....

    Id say he made it 1/3 of the way in..... I wouldnt of minded trying but was leary... I setup my snorkel for that occasional not so long hole like this one....where you hit it and it gets deep and you can stop and backup before it boggs and gets too deep.. .or if you are feet away... hammer it down... :haha:

    I'd probrably just get crazy with some silicone on the joints were water could seep in and a rubber washer up up top. Is your distributor water proofed yet.
