  • SAFARI SNORKEL now availible.

    Previously Safari just had a part number listed on their website, but now the kit is actually available and they have pictures too:

          Do it yourself.

          There is nothing better than using a holesaw on a brand new car.

          But seriously, it is a very easy install but I think I will wait for the TJM snorkel.
          thanks,

            Spoke with a bloke from ARB about it and they've been told it still a month or so away - the one on the web is the final design that they are now gearing up to produce.

              Eastie,

              Did you get any word on pricing mate?

              Has anyone found snorkels to increase wind noise? I'd imagine there would be a change in induction noise.

                The safari snorkel 'apparently' make more noise (wind) than the equivilant Airtec. No comparission on hte NS obviously - however have heard in may instances this is the case. I hope TJM get thier s$%t together soon and get one ready. I also like the look of the Sirtec ove the Safari job.

                  The Safari snorkel on my last 4WD was very noisy (wind noise). I will look at airtec this time. But I have been told to be careful because often the safari has a bigger intake and the Airtec can be retrictive.
                  thanks,

                    I also like the look of the Airtec over the Safari job.

                    Have to assume that with a replacement washer bottle (stainless steel) the ths will be more expesive than NM/NP pries of $495 + fitting

                      The airtec certainly looks better, sitting flush against the a pillar the whole way up, however I would say the safari would be more functional in that you can alter direction of the intake. All things being equal, I care a lot less about looks in this case, however I DO care about wind noise. Will be interested to see feedback as I will be fitting a snorkel to my NS when I return to Australia next Febuary.

                      Geez TJM have been sluggish with aftermarket products for the NS!

                        There's no word on the price as yet, but would expect it to be around the 6-7 mark.

                          compared to the factory in take the Airtec looks like it would drag more air...but would need too have a closer look. the Safari definately looks to be more 'up-right'/forward facing at point of intake which may help it grab more air.

                            I got an email from Safari today in reference to my question about the SWB availability and they are not available at this stage but they expect to have one in next couple of months.

                              On my way to work yesterday I saw a NS (LWB) with a snorkel - It looked like a Safari from a distance but I didn't get a chance to have a closer look. Surely if there's one on a LWB that it will fit the SWB also??
