When you go to the Mitsubishi service centre and the guy behind the desk tells you to put a branded snorkel on instead of the OEM you start to ask questions.
I’ve always had a TJM snorkel on all of my 4wds, I think I just like the shape of them compared to some of the other ones you see getting around. I went to the service centre because I figured that there would not be a snorkel out for the Pajero Sport being as new as it is.
Turns out the the OEM snorkel supplied by Mitsubishi is not a sealed unit and does not increase wading depth. The standard wading depth on the Sport is 700mm, which isn’t bad, but having flooded a 4×4 before I don’t want to take a chance. As explained to me by the dealer it is to induce cleaner air into the engine. Why call it a snorkel?
Being turned off by this I went straight to TJM and had a snorkel fitted. A true sealed snorkel! You will be looking at some where between $750 to $900 fitted which is quite fair considering the factory one was $927 and not sealed.
A must if you plan to cross any water in your time. But remember if its flooded, forget it!
