    Is there a reason people make custom snorkels with stainless steel? I thought it would get hot in the sun and then you would be sucking in hot air and the engine would not get full benifit, I'm thinking of making one out of pvc stormwater pipe and painting it so it doesn't look like stormwater pipe (how ever swmbo wants me to save up and get a safari)

    I guess usually it's for looks and strength. Where I live there's never going to be a problem with sucking in hot air. I used stainless pipe and rubber elbows because it was an easy plug and play way to do it and I think it looks good. I also used some nice looking hose clamps instead of having to glue it so I can pull it apart easily any time. Plastic pipe can also crack if it's struck but that depends on what type of driving you're doing I guess.
    But as they say: horses for courses.

    I saw a Gu today with twin stainless snorkels. I heard this thing before i saw it. Nice whistling Td42 and massive lift.
    It looked weird when i first saw it but the more i stared the more i liked it. Jeez did it sound awesome though....
    When hell freezes over and i get my td done ill be putting a stainless snorkel on i reckon.

    The performance gains far outweigh the looks. Especially if you run 4" all the way to the turbo.

    I guess size is as important to performance as material, eg: a 2" stainless won't out perform a 4" plastic.
