My snorkel growls when i back off the power. Only notice it at low speeds when i have to frequently power on and off to go round roundabouts, intersections and the like. Sounds like a burbling growl. At first i thought some bearings or what not in the driveline ware buggered, but it's defo the snorkel....

I don't mind the sound at all :) was just wondering if it was normal. It's the Ironman one. It's quite large in size (well, bigger than i expected). Air cleaner is standard.

Cool. I'm not bovvad. Just wanted to make sure it was normal. Should it bother the missus a bit, you reckon one of those prefilter sock thingos'd do the trick?

A friend took all the growl out of his recently after going through a flock of galahs, yup mesh gone and all.
It was the loss of power that was the real issue. haha he loves his golf I told him it was the only birdy he was ever likely to get.

Happening next week. Not so sure of myself now...:confused:
Hi Mic, So you went ahead, I thought you were going to get put off by some of the info on the other thread. Don't think I've seen an Iron Man, put up a pic mate.

Yep mine makes all kinds of noises. I love it personally. Dunno weather the minister does though. She seems to like driving with the window up a lot more now

I wouldn't use a snorkel sock for general driving, as they are sure to slow/interfere with air flow.
They have their place on the dirt though, lesser of two evils.
