Safari Snorkel - SS180HF
The Safari SS180-HF snorkel is tough and stylish and has been designed to deliver a huge volume of the coolest and cleanest air possible into the stock air cleaner assembly of the Toyota 90 Series Land Cruiser Prado.
With the variety of engine options available in the Toyota Prado, Safari took the decision to design a snorkel system specifically for the 1KZ-TE 3.0L Intercooled Turbo Diesel. Best of all, this Safari snorkel system not only exceeds the airflow requirements of the 1KZ-TE but also satisfied the mass air flow demands of the Dtronic enhanced IntercooledTurbo Diesel engine.
Close attention to the internal cross-sectional profile and area, air velocity and flow path through each and every point along the entire length of the snorkel system ensures that the greatest air flow is achieved.
This of course applies to components that are not visible. For example, in order to achieve the optimum airflow and the maximum user convenience (for other under-hood accessories), a special cuffed hose was engineered to closely couple the snorkel body to the standard air intake assembly. This specialized hose is specifically constructed for positive sealing at each end via the cuffs and is exceptionally tough to eliminate any possibility of hose collapse under suction - and super tough to withstand high under-hood temperatures. The result is a maximum engine performance and bullet-proof durability.
Huge air flow is but one aspect of the ultimate in snorkel design. The Safari air ram is designed to perform two critical roles. The most obvious is to funnel cool clean air into the snorkel body - but just as importantly, the Safari air ram acts as a highly efficient water separator to remove rainwater from the incoming air stream - thus ensuring safe engine operation through even the most torrential tropical storms.
In addition, the detachable Safari air ram can be rotated to any position. This means great peace of mind for those who plan to travel in cold or high altitude conditions where heavy snowfalls are anticipated. By rotating the air ram to face away from the prevailing wind/direction of motion, the air ram delivers additional protection from the choking effects of snow build-up inside the air intake.
The Safari Snorkel body is manufactured to the highest standards in durable, UV stable, cross-linked polyethylene material. In addition, the substantial material wall thickness delivers huge physical strength to ensure that the snorkel breezes through the toughest off-road conditions on the planet.
