Sierra Snorkel Options

Unread post by HDG05 » May 30th, 2011, 6:55 am

Howdy
I have a 90 sierra soft-top and am wanting to make a snorkel for it. Needing some advice please..
What have people had good success using to make it, different diameter pipe, stainless/PVC/exhaust tubing?
Also one big question I have is what's the go with some snorkel heads pointing backwards/forwards, some with no head pointing backwards??? (All I read once was backwards facing is a must for LPG powered vehicles for some reason)
Whats the benifits of each setup?
Thanks

Hi again,

Have you tried the auszookers site as I think that forum will address most of your sierra questions with heaps of options and opinions. It is a good friendly site.

Regards Don :D

Each to their own, and yeah i'd prefer a snorkel that is sealed properly over a pvc one.
