need to add a snorkel, and a splash/skid plate!
Posted 04 September 2005 - 10:32 PM
tonight on the way to the grocerey store, I came across a flodded road, and decided to take the impreza across it as fast as I could (accelerating from the point at wich i discovered it, so it was only about 35mph) and then I went back and did it again... the second time thru though, it must have sucked up some water because it slowed way down and the CEL came on it was blinking on and off a bunch, and the motor did not want to run when i was holding down the gas. it would idle just fine though, so it wasnt flooded completely- when i got to the apartment, i took the air filter out and it was completely soaked! so I think its time for the snorkel treatment, and a splash guard/skid plate to cover the bottom of the engine bay....
any of you MN guys want to help me out, with at least an idea of where I can get some of the needed things ( skid plate material? ) or where to get a good deal on parts for a snorkel (ABS/PVC pipe or drainage hose?)
pics of the impreza's recent offroad mods to come soon too
and.. I am still looking for a PS rack!!

Home Depot should have all the snorkel materials you need. Maybe we can get together and hit up a HOme Depot. I should put a small snorkel on mine also. My current airbox setup works well but its rather ghetto fabulouse
