    My aircleaner doesn't fit well to this rochester carb I am using on my FJ40. The perfect excuse to buy a different aircleaner and snorkel combo. I found a old military NATO snorkel once that was great on EBAY. I didn't buy it then and haven't seen them since then.

    I need suggestions on a aircleaner and snorkel combo and where to get it or build it etc?

    I have heard mixed reviews on ARB snorkel kits anyway? I need a cannister aircleaner suggestion anyway..

    I'd look at modifying a stock aircleaner, either the F or 2F so you can draw cooler air from right behind the bib. Of course you'll accomplish the same thing, even better, with a snorkel.
    There was a good post with pics today on a fabbed snorkel. It was for a Vortec, however.

    thanks for all the help. I think right now I will try to use a stock f aircleaner and modify it for a snorkel later. I read all the posts on the pirate web and cannot for the life of me make sense of all of it. Once I get the F aircleaner mounted I'll have to link it through flex tube to a snorkel system.

    Thanks again.
