Great idea, but the A/C plenum of the P38 makes it nearly impossible to do.Rat_RR02 said:Hi Guys,
thats a really good idea. I have been toying with this sort of idea for a while. It didnt occur to me to use the same area as the A/C plenum though. Interesting.
Has anyone done it on the P38? I like the idea of a snorkel but I hate the look.
Anyway, when I get home I have a more important job to do, I have to stop the roof rack whistle above 80Km/hr. It is driving my 6 yo son crazy.
cheers n beers

You have no way to go directly to the AC plenum except if you cut a big hole in the firewall.paul.adshead said:Care to elaborate?996TURBO said:Great idea, but the A/C plenum of the P38 makes it nearly impossible to do.
Also, another issue with redirecting to the AC plenum, is you are drawing in warmer air, than the air in the wing (- which will mean you'll use extra fuel). If it could be worked to use the AC plenum for off-road stuff, then a valve switched when back on-road, this would be a brilliant 'stealth snorkel'!
In Rallying, that maybe more related to reducing dust breathed in and clogging the filters, maybe?996TURBO said:A while ago i read that Renault Sport in rally choosed to draw air from this zone (right under the plenum) because it was the more efficient.
