basically you are changing where the motor gets its air. instead of a hot engine bay, it is pulling air from the cowl (under the windshield wipers). it is a snorkel because you can even have water come up onto the hood, and it wont hydrolock. imagine the snorkel that sticks out the side and goes up the A pillar, but it is all hidden.

hmmm... weird, I wonder if that big area has a slip feature in it for the engine wrap. Just don't forget a snorkel is just the beginning of making a truck "water proof"

I have seen a few guys run hommade versions of this, and it seems to work alright... I like the idea myself actually. If you do it, make sure you takes pictures and report on if it works.
