IRONMAN 4X4 Snorkels

Post by NISMOnator »

Hi Almal,

How do you guys rate the IRONMAN Snorkels? Apparently they are very close to the SAFARI ones?

Considering getting one fitted. :think:

Thanks

Jacques,


Quality is paramount for this type of extra, and I would suggest go for the Safari model. My partner at LA Sport Centurion can help you. Contact Herman at 012 653 8834

Morning,

Just got my new 4.8 Patrol yesterday, fitted with a Ironman snorkel. My question - the interior of the engine bay where the air pipe goes into the fender is in front and the snorkel on the outside goes through the body on the back end of the fender. Are the two connected inside or nor (piped???)? My old Potrol (4.2SGL) is aligned - the snorkel goes through the fender directly inline with the airpipe / duct in the inside of the engine bay.

Dawid, it's easy to test:

Just put your hand over the snorkel's mouth with the engine running.

Dankie aan almal se raad. Ek het nadat ek met installeerder ook gepraat het wat SAFARI en IRONMAN doen. Besluit om maar eeder vir die COST effective IRONMAN te gaan want volgens hom is die twee se kwaliteit basies presies dieselfde.

Tyd sal leer, maar ek sien online is dit tog nog a populere Australiese produk. Sal fotos oplaai sodra dit gefit is. :thumbup:

Guys, don't laugh! Is there anyway that a person can test the operation of a snorkel without out having to drown the vehicle?
Just curious and paranoid that maybe its not water tight?

Thanks
