Air in­take

Land Rover AFRICA Magazine - - TECHNICAL TALK | HOW-TO-GUIDE -

If the wa­ter is higher than say head­light height, then a wise pre­cau­tion is to fit a snorkel to the air in­take, to pre­vent the Landy from in­gest­ing wa­ter. Gen­er­ally speak­ing, if your engine gets a mouth­ful of wa­ter, you will seize it, which is very in­con­ve­nient and ex­pen­sive. Ide­ally fit an af­ter­mar­ket snorkel as this will in­crease your wad­ing depth sub­stan­tially. Be care­ful of af­ter­mar­ket high per­for­mance air in­takes that sit low in the bon­net and face for­ward, this is the first place the wa­ter will get into the engine and cause a hy­dro lock which causes ma­jor engine fail­ure.
