stupid question

ive been reading a lot of post about water damage and what not. There are so many things to worry about before the water reaches the filter, like the diff., various breathers, and electronics. so here is my question. does the little not snorkel on the airbox mean anything? or serve any purpose?

boosted inline 6 50. trim turbo
40" super swamper boggers
high pinion d44 front trussed
ford 8.8 rear axle conversion
se 9500 milemarker winch
locked front and rear
rough country steering stabilizers
clayton long arm
3inch body lift
2 coil spacer lift
eagle alloys 15's
on-board air system
kc daylighters 100w long range
rocker guards
rhino liner

It just raises the level of the actual intake of air. Other than that, I don't believe it serves any purpose.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

i have found that with the little elbow intake thingy pointing up, it seems to act like a funnel when water is splashed up in the engine bay area. so i have rotated mine to point downish.
I'ma come at your like a spider monkey!

I don't believe anything you do can make a vehicle absolutely safe to go through water. I do know that you need a heck of a lot more than just a snorkel to be effective.

Kyle has a good tip, though. It makes perfect sense, but I hadn't thought of it.
To all who serve, Thank You.

Supposedly it increases the speed of air into the throddle body thus making the noise of air entering it quieter.
