im EFI no rejeting.
I changed from this


to this


Changing to this route lessens the bends teh air must take greatly. I used a 3" elbow and cut off the ends. Everything else is still 2" pipe.

He re routed the entire snorkel under the steering brace using the rubber 3" 90 instead of around it where he used a 2" 180* fitting(p-trap) It allows for more unrestricted airflow. All of the other fittings used in the project are 2". More info can be found here

Just use the 3" rubber 90 and other 2" fittings and route it under the steering brace as pictured and you will be good to go.

I know many dudes who roll 31s but it still blows me away the size of those suckers. They are HUGE. Bigger than the tires on that suv in your driveway it appears!

I did my snorks that way from the getgo, works great!

I had the 3" elbow already. I just rerouted mine just a few days ago to go through the frame. It looks to be a lot less restrictive.

Thats the best way to do it, when i did mine like that I had to good up in my jetting (was already using the 3" 90), so it gave it more air!!!

either
A) be real real careful and more crafty than me, or
B) Take a jigsaw and box knife to it like i did and settle for rough edges;)

a 2.5 or 2.75 or 3" hole saw would work too.

I cut my plastic with a drywall rotor but a dremal tool would work just as well. Take a scrap piece of 2" PVC and cut a 45 degree angel on one end.Hold the the PVC straight up and down so the 45 end will fit nice and flat against the plastic shroud. be sure you do the center one first that way you don't get them off center.Mark around the pipe with a marker and this will give you the shape of the holes you will cut. Once you have the holes cut use a razor knife to clean up the edges.

Then you can get some thin walled rubber vent hose...slice it down the middle and cover the edges of the plastic up and that makes it look like a factory job. The actual hose that I used was about 3/8 Goodyear hose from Autozone, but as long as it's thin and flexible it will work.

What new pieces did you use? Is that two new 90's with one of them with the flanges cut off? and did you reuse your stack, or how did you get the pipe apart?
