my buddy had a 1990 F-250 with a 302. He ran some Powerstroke intercooler piping back over to the firewall, cut a hole and had stick out the glovebox into the car. Sounded pretty awesome if you were ridin shotgun lol

Full install here (http://chrisb.users.superford.org/Bronco/Projects/Snorkel/Snorkel.html).

I plumbed this:

I used the stock intake piece that attaches to the rad support:

Used some super-bonder and RTV silicone to attach some rubber (from home plumbing fittings). I also put a metal sleeve inside the round end to keep the plastic from crushing when it was all clamped together:

And voila! The round peg is in the rectangular peg. :D
