ARB has finally released their Safari Snorkel Air Intake System for the 2016+ Tacoma 4×4 and PreRunner. This moves the air intake from the wheel well area and puts it up high to keep the truck from chugging water into the intake during deep water crossings and also provides a cleaner charge of air and a slight ram air affect at speed. Mates to your factory air box and uses your factory style air filter. You do have to drill some holes in your truck for this (one is quite large), so be ready for that. Comes with instructions and templates.
Avoiding dust, water and snow ingestion is essential for keeping your 4×4 moving down the trail. Safari Snorkels relocate an engine’s air intake from a low, vulnerable position to a high, safe location where a constant supply of cold, clean air is available.
Featuring the new ARMAX design, the new Toyota Tacoma snorkel for the 3rd generation model is the start of a new generation of raised air intakes from Safari Snorkel. Tested and verified on an airflow bench, each ARMAX design ensures that the airflow through the snorkel meets or exceeds that of the factory inlet design. This ensures that if the owner wishes to increase their engine’s performance (ECU, exhaust, forced induction), the snorkel will meet those needs while providing the cold, clean air that is a standard benefit from any Safari Snorkel model. The SS172HP ARMAX outperforms the CFM flow of other brand Tacoma application snorkels by 10%.
