i was going to use an airbox from something else on mine, but i wasn;t going snorkel so i didn;t consider it but it should work out just like yours is set up.
you fellas know a pouring rain storm won;t hurt your engine with a snorkel. your engine can actually run while ingesting a fair amount of water. in the combustion cycle, the water is burned off so you get a little more oxygen so the computer guys might have a mixture issue after driving for a while like that but us carb guys can run like that all the time.
on my old bmws (and i mean 84-89), to clean out the combustion chamber, i would start the car, turn the hose on and then stick it in the intake. not on super flow but turn it on so i had a good enough stream , not a trickle. the car would bog but i just opened the throttle a bit more and it revved right up. cleaned the chambers just like using any of those bottles you hook to your vacuum line.
i know some people are going to be horrified to read that but its the way things were done back in the days. my dad used to be a mechanic at a shop in corona california. he said that was how they did it back in the 70s. that or trans fluid in the carb. i tried them both and sea foam. they all work the same to me but the water hose was cheaper.
i am not saying go out and jam the hose into your carb and start the jeep though, we don;t need any hydrolocked motors. if you are going to do this, start with a small trickle of water and increase a little and then do it just like the seafoam directions. works exactly the same. smokes like crazy, just like seafoam does. runs way better afterwards, just like with seafoam
