Nugget Stuff Defender TD5 Sealed Air Box – 300TDI
Sadly, fitting a snorkel to a Defender TD5 or 300TDI, like the Puma’s, does not guarantee safe water crossings. The original ducting from the back of the snorkel to the air filter box is poor fitting, push together plastic with gaps big enough to drive a Range Rover through. No sealant, not clamped….hardly a sealed system. Image how much water could pour through the gaps in the factory ducting showing in the picture. Clearly, push together plastic just doesn’t cut the mustard but the Nugget Stuff TD5 Sealed Air Box kit does.
NOT SUITABLE FOR SAFARI SNORKELS WHERE THE HOSE CLAMPS DIRECT TO THE BACK OF THE SNORKEL
Now there is a solution with Nugget Stuff’s replacement kit. Comprising a replacement air box which screws to the inside of the inner guard and an adaptor for the air filter box end allowing the 2 to be connected with a 90mm 2ply silicon hose and then a 75mm 2 ply silicon hose which are clamped in position.
The reducing adaptor and replacement air box are moulded from tough polyurethane. The air box lid and body are sealed to ensure an airtight seal. The TD5 sealed air box kit also significantly improves air flow with minimal restriction silicon hose which 90mm from the sealed air box and then 75mm straight through to the sir filter box.
The kit contains all components, including a tube of Sensor Safe sealant and stainless steel clamps and takes 2-3 hours to fit. Compatible with most snorkels.
