    P38 Snorkel/ Raised Air Intake

    Thought you folks might like to see what we've been up to here in Oz... finally a snorkel/Raised Air Intake for the P38. First production model was fitted to my car over the weekend.


    Not ecstatic about the Safari head (will perhaps have our own head inline with the roof instead) and the guard mounts will be more reinforced in the next mould.

    Visibility is very good (maybe 30mm loss though front window) and no noticeable wind noise tested up to 100Km/h..

    Another couple of pics taken showing snorkel/RAI with HRA 3-hoop Roo Bar, HID lights and LED work lamps.




    Not available for ordering through hardrange.com yet, as it is still being tested on my car. Pretty **** happy so far

    Cheers, Paul.

    another pic showing the setup with lamp guards attached:


    ...and with the front diff guard. Winch and bash plate coming soon


    Current material is reinforced fibreglass. If we get sufficient volume of orders to reduce production costs, will look to move to injected plastics.

    Nice work. It does look like the side molding has to travel quite a distance to get to the a-pillar but that is due placement of the airbox. Nice rig. Shipping to the states will probably be prohibitively expensive....

    Re: P38 Snorkel/ Raised Air Intake

    i'm still at the top of the list for one AREN"T I Paul :P

    that is very neat , your right about the Safari top and i still would have prefered aesthetically a squared off leading end to match the profile of the guard front , BUT , a very good job fellas.

    Re: P38 Snorkel/ Raised Air Intake

    Personally I have never liked the 'Safari style' snorkel, whether on a Defender, Disco, or
    whatever. It is a good effort though, and brilliant that someone is making one at last
    especially for teh P38.
    The best one I have 'seen' on the internet though is this one:




    No other details from me though, sorry. Also doesn't look straight forward fitting as the
    bonnet needs to be modified.

    I tracked down the guy who made that snorkel awhile back and it cost about $2500US to fabricate.

    +1, i really like this MANTEC metal design but it was fitted on a coil converted car.

    It's very difficult to work with the stock place of the air box and EAS box.

    I may upgrade mine to this if i find some time to move the air box from front to back and the EAS box

    Mine is looking this way right now

    Fantastic looking design.... Here's hoping you manage to get them to blown plas... And somebody to sell them in the UK...

    Just wondering if anyone has tried to get a D3 snorkle to fit.... or if its way, off as I was going to try and hunt down a D3 today and take some comparative measurements...

    Dave,

    D3 snorkel is on the RHD side. P38 airbox is on LHD side

    Re: P38 Snorkel/ Raised Air Intake

    I know its on the wrong side, was thinking either flexi hose or go for something special... like silicone...

    And of course for the first time when I was in town I couldnt find a D3 to park up next too...
