Snorkel For Hitachi
Posted 18 February 2004 - 03:40 AM
Also, if I were to remove the stock filter housing, would you guys suggest removing all the vacuum lines and just running a "connector" (been up too long) from the carb inlet to say a K&N?
I Have a Filter to Inlet "connector" from an SPFI wagon and I think it could be adapted to work with the Hitachi. Any Input from the pros? Pictures would be good as well.
PS.... I will be looking to "utilitarializing" the interior in the near future. ( muddy carpet )

As for the snorkel itself, I haven't heard of anybody adapting a kit from another make. I know people have made snorkels out of PVC pipe that looked pretty good, and I think that's what I'm going to do.
With the Weber carb, there aren't nearly as many vacuum lines or air hoses underhood. The only ones that I still have that need filtered air are the PCV system and the ASV system, which I ran to little K&N filters up behind the passenger side strut tower. You could probably do something similar.

For Webers, the snorkle kit from Redline is kinda expensive. I've got one like this from JAM Engineering but it cost too much. Now they're selling these for $32 which I'd say is more reasonable and it bolts on with no adapter plate needed. http://www.jameng.com

mine had some clearance issues when the hood closed, because i have an ea82 engine in an ea81 car. i just had to cut down the rubber coupling for an extra half inch. you gotta cram it on an ea82, or clamp it hard on an ea81carb.
works good, and its cheap.

A cheap easy effective "snorkel" for your Hitachi and its aircleaner is to just simply tie a red rag around the end of it. It will stop water from getting into your carb- once. You can then rotate it to a dry spot. Very little water will get past the red rag to your filter.
A simple piece of vacuum hose sent back to the spare tire area can work wonders too. Red rag the end anyways. It will keep some dust out too.

What has anyone used on the top end of this project?
Not the part that attaches to the carb...
I want something cool sticking through the hood.
82 Hatch, well it used to be...
