    I have been told tha the ORD vehicle runs a snorkle into the driving compartment. And it looks like this is true. I was wondering your opinion on this. Noisy? Hoe did you plumb it?

    Thanks

    Don't do it unless you have to! It's pretty noisy, not as bad as when it was under the dash, but still makes a big sucking noise, not to mention a 4" tube in the middle of the windshield kind of restricts your vision. But it's very clean and dry up there, which was important at TTC. At this point, I need to put it back under the hood pretty soon so I can put the heater back in it. It's going to be necessary pretty quick.
    I thought about running twin ARB snorkels, but that's a lot of cash for something I really don't use, and more stuff to snag off on trees and rocks. For what I normally do, having the intake 5 feet off the ground should work just fine.
