If you search you should find heaps of pics and discussion from the others.
To get you started....

I did a 4 inch stainless snorkel for my old TD42 GQ.
I used 2x45 degree bends and 1x90 degree bend.
The pipe lengths were 740mm horizontal and 975mm up the windscreen. Lengths may vary depending on what kind of rubber bends you are using.

Do you have a link? I can't seem to find a snorkel thread by him.

i would say around the $200 mark with the bends/clamps and head around $100 or so as i bought a 4m length of pipe for the job.I already had the 45deg stainless bend but they should only be around $40 from an exhaust shop.
