Post Does Snorkus/Silencer have drain hole(s)?

I pulled the orange grill/vents from my bumper today. While I had the one off on the passenger side I could look in and see a part of the silencer/snorkus. I have considered removing this, but have held off so far because it sounds like a bit of a pain in the ass to do and have heard mixed responses regarding the resulting sound. Anyway, on a whim, and because I think I had seen a post where someone did this before, I drilled about 1/2 dozen wholes in the front of the snorkus/silencer that is right behind the grill/vent. I doubt this will make much of a difference, but a little extra air never hurts. One question though, is there a drain hole or holes in the snorkus/silencer? Just want to make sure that H20 that might get in there can drain out. As I recall the snorkus/silencer does have a drain, so probably any big deal.

Thanks.

Yes there is a drain hole in the very bottom of the Snorkus, you'll be OK.

I highly recommend the snorkusectomy.

However.... your mileage may vary.

For me? Worked great..... great sound at WOT, no whine at idle, car revs up much faster. After putting on the amsoil filter it sounds much smoother than with the paper filter.

If you are scared to do it, then don't do it. This type of mod could cause serious damage to your car if done improperly (however the instructions done up by Juice are pretty bulletproof).

I have mirrored them on my site if you ever do decide to de-snorkusumize your car. http://www.remarcable.net/misc/legacy_outback/

Thanks for the input. I'll probably pull the thing out of there some day.

My car was already out of the 2 year 30k bumper-to-bumper so that is why I finally went ahead and did it.

Those of you with brand-new cars might want to wait a bit before cutting into your air intake.
