Im almost willing to place bets the ebay seller who sold out sold the last one to me. This arvo the fiberglass gold reflective tape showed up that im going to use to wrap the intake with. It will have to wait a few more days for me to gdt the time to get it done

There are alternatives in the forums, Some much more sophisticated, alternatives to the holes, extending to added items to encourage ram air? effects.

Quite frankly I find what I have done is more then enough for the 2ltr NA engine and any more would be overkill.

To each their own! :D


HAHAHAH cheers man! Gonna go on the hunt for it tomorrow, did you just call your local dealer and they had one on hand or did they have to get stock from a spare parts Center?


i sent evo racing spares a fb message, guy was pretty helpful, got a 2nd hand snorkel for $90! absolutely cheering

Can't remember how much I paid for mine from Mitsubishi, but it wasn't as much as $165. Definitely a necessary changeover though!
I might add a pic of my car once I style the exterior a bit :).

It will help reduce the internal temp of the air intake. Not my idea but others have reported it does. Fire up ebay and gold reflective tape. Its fibreglass reinforced so wear gloves

This is the one i bought

If your looking for a new RA snorkel you wont get much change out of $200 for a new one.
