Avoiding dust, water and snow ingestion is essential for keeping your 4x4 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 2nd 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 vehicle 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 SS171HP ARMAX outperforms the CFM flow of other brand Tacoma application snorkels by 10%.

Features:

  • Raises air intake to prevent water ingestion, while also allowing vehicles to utilize clean air when driving in dusty conditions.
  • Vehicle specific design and factory airbox adaption fit
  • Manufactured using durable, UV stable cross linked polyethylene material.
  • Supplied as a comprehensive kit, including the necessary fasteners and mounting brackets.
  • Unique air ram design acts as a highly efficient water separator to remove rain water from incoming air stream.
  • Designed and manufactured in Australia.
  • 10% higher CFM for this application over other brand snorkels.

Snorkel Body:

Manufactured to the highest standards in durability, UV stable, cross linked polyethylene material. The substantial wall thickness of the snorkel body provides strength for the toughest conditions.

Air Ram Assembly:

While the air ram is responsible for directing cold, clean air into the snorkel body, it also incorporates a highly effective water separator system that removes rainwater from the incoming air stream. Additionally, the head can be rotated to any position away from the prevailing weather to avoid the choking, build-up of snow accumulation

Connection Hose & Hardware:

Designed specifically to suit the required application, the connection hose is made from high quality molded EPDM rubber, which allows maximum air flow from the air ram and body into the air factory air cleaner inlet. A complete installation kit is supplied with each snorkel, which includes all the high quality, necessary fasteners.

ARB took their sweet time unfortunately to design/build/distribute them for my 2012 Taco DCSB. But now I see why. I wasn't expecting any performance improvement and was purely doing this because I was sick of changing the air filter on multi-day dirt road exploring/camping or worse following people. The taco pulls from in the front fender well which is where all the dust was going and my oil on my new truck would turn black in 3k or less miles and that's with changing the air filter out every time I hit pavement. I was concerned and sent my oil analysis jar to Blackstone Labs to see what they thought. Sure enough my Silica and Iron were twice the normal average they see for my vehicle. Now that I have run 9,000k miles with the ARB and 2 oil changes both have dropped in half to below normal, plus I went 5k on my last air filter instead of 70 miles before banging and swapping. Another unexpected performance gain was now I'm able to run the Crappy Pollution grade 87 regular octane gas which made my truck ping on light acceleration on the highway. My truck is heavy, bumpers, winch, armor, flip-pac camper, 24 gallons of liquid, 200 lbs of gear. Now my Taco holds gears longer before dropping a gear on hills, and I even saw a 3/4 mile per/gallon increase in the summer, and I have seen a miracle of 2.3mpg increase on the flats with the cold weather so the ram air ability of the new design is definitely worth it for my truck.
