Product: Mazda BT50 Snorkel - Diesel
Product Code: SSKFR001
The Mazda BT50 has taken Australia by storm, quickly becoming one of the popular options against the Hilux since its release. With comfortable interior and a good looking exterior, combined with a high safety rating and capable 4WD components it is a great combination for many around Australia. Add a 3.5 Tonne towing capacity and you have one of the best tow vehicles in Australia. Add a Sherpa 4x4 Snorkel and you will get further performance and economy benefits that will make the car even more suited to whatever you throw at it.
Sherpa 4x4 has designed the ultimate in off-road snorkels. Increased air flow, water proofing and durability against the harshest of environments are key and no sacrifices have been made in style or construction quality. Only the highest grade UV and Colour stabilised plastics have been used. Backed by a 3 Year warranty!
Why fit a snorkel?
Increase air flow to your engine. Many customers report increased power and fuel economy after fitting a snorkel.
Draw in cool air which is somewhat forced into the air intake due to the forward motion of the vehicle.
Increase the life of your air filter.
Avoid possible engine failure from water ingress to your engine when performing water crossing.
Fitting a snorkel is one of the cheapest and effective ways of increasing your vehicles capability off road.

Due to popular demand, Sherpa 4x4 will be reducing the number of snorkels moulded with our yellow ‘Sherpa 4x4’ branding. We are seeing growing demand for a less conspicuous product and will now supply the snorkel without the yellow logo as standard. The snorkel moulds, plastics and all other components will remain unchanged and still be the high quality expected of the Sherpa 4x4 brand. We will keep some snorkel stock on hand with the original yellow branding and if you wish to order one of these please specify when placing your order.
Air Ram Head
Sherpa 4x4 utilises a 2 piece injection moulded air ram head. A simple, yet effective 4 vane drain system prevents water entering the vehicles intake for added security. Finishing off the snorkel head is a stylish and durable, laser cut, 316 stainless steel grill. Attached to the main snorkel body using a 316 stainless screw clamp allowing the snorkel head to be easily rotated to face any angle. This is useful in conditions such as snow, sandy, muddy and dusty environments, and provides a key advantage over modern integrated snorkel heads.
Constructed as a single piece LLDPE rotomoulded snorkel body. Such a production process is designed to give Sherpa 4x4 snorkels the highest integrity and uniformity. Internal shaping and pipe diameters are developed to allow increased, unrestricted and excess air flow to your engine. Avoiding circular delivery pipes prevents inconsistencies in cross sectional airflow, regions of low pressure and whirl pooling as seen with many snorkels.
Sherpa 4x4 specifies only the highest grades of LLDPE plastics for the construction of our snorkels. Being an Australian business we understand that our customers 4WDs are exposed to some of the harshest conditions in the world. All plastics used are seeded for UV and colour stabilisation. Shorter chain branching and a low deviation in molecular weight distribution allows for good shear resistance, high impact and puncture resistance as well as environmental stress cracking resistance. These features along with just enough flexibility and polymer extension means you have one tough snorkel that can handle outback conditions as well as contend with vibrations and flexes in your four wheel drive.
Included in this kit
Air ram snorkel head and clamp

Detailed fitting instructions specific to the BT-50
Sherpa 4x4 stands by the quality of our products and all snorkels come with a peace of mind 3 year warranty. However, independent plastic testing and weathering results show that these snorkels and components will be functioning on your vehicle for decades.
Stand out from the crowd with the moulded yellow Sherpa 4x4 logo and stainless steel grill available in several colours on request. However, if this is not your cup of tea we can normally supply our snorkels with black plastic grills and snorkel bodies without the yellow logo.
Sherpa 4x4 strives to provide the most accurate and up to date information regarding the suitability of each snorkel for various vehicles, years and engine types. Given the large number of makes, models and variations within these such as flared guards, dual batteries etc we advise doing some additional research or contacting one of our dealers to discuss your purchase. Product may vary slightly from image.
Sherpa 4x4 snorkels are designed with simple installation in mind. All components are included in the kit and often only a hole saw, screw driver and some sealant is required to complete the install. While 95% of our customers choose to install the snorkel themselves, we do advise that snorkels be installed by one of our dealers or by a professional mechanic or similar.
