Id rather use an off the shelf unit personally so it doesn't look jerry rigged.
I thought about a snorkel before. I was going to use a K&N Appolo and run the hose into the fender or up toward the firewall:
Also later down the road I'd run the hose to an off the shelf snorkel tube. With this kit I could switch back to an open element as I wish since such a long intake pipe would hurt performance a bit.
