hey man i cut a hole in the bottom of my airbox,and sealed a 2" pvc fitting in it.then i routed the pvc all 2" back towards the rearend and came out,and ran under the belt drive all the way up through the cargo box.but make sure you run all 2" or it'll run like crap.the tranny,and belt can be the blue flex vacuum line you can run it just about anywhere.make them all meet up through the cargo box.

It sounds kinda like the 700 Grizzly. Could you use the flex hose on the air box also and just run two out?

Man if its alright I will post some threads to some good snorkle pics and some with instructions.....
The popos are definantly not the easiest...
Most are putting them in the pod, for a "stealth" look....
Or coming out of the font box, which most cases you lose your front box, as you cannot open it..
I have seen some set it up where you leave enough slack in the hoses where it will open, and one where it slid INTO the stacks that came out of the box when you close it and slides out when you open, though not sure how sealed that one would be...
I will get the links and post shortly....

Here isa good link to snorkles, he makes his own kind of fitting for the airbox, I did mine differently, and am fixing to do the 04.5 700 AGAIN...
There is now available something similar to what he does with plastic and pvc but it is I guess metal.. It is what I ordered for mine.... More info on that later, if it is wanted... PM me on it, as I dont want to advertise for anyone....

that is the best way to do the airbox. just remember that if you lose access to your front box that your radiator cap is in there. i personally snorkeled mine by just pushing the blue pool hose up into my stacks. works great for me

on a side note- it's never ever a good idea to totally eliminate the airbox on any machine. it serves more purposes than simply housing the air filter
