    Re: Snorkel or not?

    I seriously doubt you get more dust in Okahandja or its surrounds than we do in the Karoo. Standard air filters cope well here and are only cleaned or replaced at service intervals. Nobody cleans...

    Re: Snorkel or not?

    Amazing. I have traveled in all sorts of conditions all over and have never experienced dust on the engine like you get on rims or the rear bumper. Where did this happen to you?

    You're telling me that driving slow will generate enough dust to clog your air filter? When at 20 km/h the dust won't reach between the bonnet and the engine.

    Re: Snorkel or not?

    A Donaldson cyclonic inertia filter below the bonnet will do exactly the same thing at a fraction of the cost. You can empty the dust out that was caught before it got to the dust filter. If dust...
