All jokes aside, it could be for desert use. I'm not super familiar with it but people will run the snorkel opening backwards to help keep dust out of the intake. I guess being higher up and backwards makes sense to take on less dust. The Factory Ranger Raptor that ran or is running Baja has a reverse snorkel

Off topic but what’s up w/ that rotor? Cool shot though.

Snorkel on forced induction? Hmmm , id say probably not. Probably lose a good amount of power.

Why? Raptor is not built for forging rivers.
Well i dont need to educate the masses on this topic, but for those of us who actually use our rigs for more than looking cool, snorkles keep out the desert dust of which i encounter regularly when in baja where the dust is similar to talcum powder. The intake just above the grill on these trucks is like a shovel ready to scoop it up.
Regarding “forging rivers” - seems you’ve never dropped into a river crossing where you’ve had to gas it to get your momentum going & had a bow wave come over your hood which can happen in as little as 1.5 feet of water.
So yes they are a huge benefit when off the main highway, which is why in Australia almost every other vehicle has one.

This is not deep at all, we can see the top of the wheels...perhaps he should have put load in the bed to cross safetier...
