Re: Xtrail Snorkel


You can fit a dual bettery system without the need to remove the air-filter box. There is a thread about that on the forum.

Re: Xtrail Snorkel


Thanks Jalal
By memory the second battery thread was about fitting the battery in the rear of the car.
Yes that would have been one of my option a few years ago , but I have done this before in other vehicles and have had a few problems with them. Gassing seems to be the main one.
  I could use the Ultima type battery, which would limit the gassing to a minimal but I have experience a few problems with them also. Batteries going BANG. Not sure why this was happening as it seemed to happen to all different type of vehicles. We did think it might have been due to the vibration & heat of a engine bays, as all the charging systems were OK.
Not to can the Ultima fully, but we did get a good run out of the batteries when used in a marine environment. They were lasting for about 5 to 6 years.

Nope, I meant inside the engine bay emoticon To keep this thread on the subject of the snorkel, please refer to THIS thread about the dual battery set-up.

Re: Xtrail Snorkel


Sorry for coming in late on this question, but what is the rationale for worring about the direction of the intake.

From all the experiance I have had, a low pressure intake is better for performance than a high pressure. (ala A9X Torana, NASCAR etc)

I just wanted to know what ppl were saying about forward facing inlets and why? (curious)

G'day Jalal,
As i mentioned earlier the whole unit fits in between the outer mudguard and the engine bay, over the wheel arch. The black flexi-tube, is siliconed into a hole cut into the top of the original accumulator which is located in behind the fog light.
I have retained the original intake but have blocked it off and is used only to hold the bonnet prop. Hope this helps.
Dez.

Re: Xtrail Snorkel


Thanks Dez, but why did you decide to tap into the resontator box instead of feading the flexi-tube directly into the air-filter box from the snorkel?

I thought the resonator box would act as an extra trap for any bugs or rain that might be introduced into the system,and i think it is the better way to go,because the air that reaches the filter would be cleaner.

Sounds like you thought about it for a while. By memory the 80 series and a few others are exactly the same

Re: Xtrail Snorkel


Hi Guys,

I was contacted by the Spanish Manufacturer for snorkels and they have advised me that they're in the process of designing a plastic snorkel for the xtrail which will be much cheaper than the fibreglass one and easier to ship.

They have realized that the current snorkel design they're offering is far too expensive.

They have offered our forum the chance to provide feedback which will help them in the design phase of the snorkel.

It is expected to be ready around September this year.

So, if any of you has any tips and feedback about it, please post it here and I will make sure they get it.

Personally, I won't be looking at this as a mod for my exy, cause my off-roading is somewhat limited these days, but I will try and organize a sample to be sent to us for an interested member of our forum to test it if you like.
