    Cheetah Exhaust in Rosslyn can help you. They custom made a Snorkle for my Korando at the price a plastic one would sell for fitted.

    They also build custom bumpers etc.

    Any luck with getting a local supplier / fabricator?

    You could order form OZ:
    https://www.jmaxengineering.com.au/p...#snorkel-style

    or e-bay:
    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/HILUX-ST...-/254011082394

    But with the Sef Efricen Ronds being so strong I think forking out R8000 for a snorkel is a bit steep....

    Hi, why not approach one of the reputable custom exhaust fabricators. There are quite a few in the industry. They mainly focus on Drag racing and performance side of things, but i am sure they will be able to make a snorkel like that. Some of these guys can work wonders with Stainless Steel Pipe.

    Also look at the guys that do pipe work or marine work, their skills will be more than good enough to fabricate that.

    Viper has made at least one for a forum mamber on a Y60 Patrol.

    Take note that he is un-willing to cut the hole in the body, so you need to do that yourself.

    has anyone here done these locally in SA? What was the cost vs plastic. Typically a "no name brand" would be round about R2k(4x4 direct)

    Im busy building a 4 SS snorkel for my Amarok.
    This would have to retail at over R4500 to cover costs as the material and dairy bends are pricey! Also, making it look seamless (sanding the TIG welds smooth with a pipe sander) takes a huge amount of time and effort.
    It may not be to everyones taste, but this is the only option if you want a full bore 102mm snorkel with no sharp bends to maximise air flow.

    Thanks guys!

    Can anyone explain the benefits of stainless steel vs plastic? Also, the plastic intake faces forward, where as the ss versions all face backwards, can anyone explain why this is the case? Naturally, one would think that the intake facing forward would 'suck' in the most amount of air? I'd think that the air flow over the tip of the ss snorkel would become disturbed / turbulent directly after the edge / lip...

    The snorkels like the Safari brand have a mechanism inside to disperse rainwater caught by the forward facing nozzle, so that it doesn’t enter the air box.

    With a DIY snorkel I suppose you’d have to make it face backward to minimise rainwater ingress.

    As to the amount of air going in, I don’t think it makes a material difference which way the nozzle faces.

    Most plastic snorkels has a too small diameter to supply enough air yo the engine.

    These SS models usually flows way better.

    A 3.0 turbo diesel need an airpipe of around 100mm for sufficient air.
