Bayou 220 snorkel

I'm about to snorkel my bayou 220. I'm gonna use 1 1/2 inch tubing and run 2 pipes. Will I have to re jet my carb and re adjust my needle? If so how many jet sizes should I go up and where should I set my needle? It's all stock no mods.
Any help would be great! Thanks in advance!

If you're leaving the stock air filter on it I wouldnt think so.

Yeah I'm leaving the can filter on it. Just wasn't sure on how it will react with the snorkel on it. i do know that when you start changing the design air box it changes how it will run.

I'm guessing it wont need any changes but once you do you'll know. how's that for an answer? I think one pipe would be fine also, thats about the size of the stock snorkel thingy.

There is no snorkel right now it stops under the seat. The reason I'm putting the snorkel on it is because when I run through the creek to get to the other side of my place I get water in my air box and it bogs it down. I wish the air box ran like the ones on the mojave. After I get done with it I'll post all about it.

I had to go look at the service manual, I work on so many four wheelers I forgot what its air box was like. I'd also check and make sure all the vent lines were good and tipped downwards on the ends if you're doing water that deep. plus dielectric grease all the electrical connectors too.

I'm done with my snorkel on the 220. Came out better than I thought it would. All my electrical is water tight and most important my air box and pluming don't leak. I took it through one side of my pond 8 times that is about 4 1/2 feet deep and ran like a champ.
I will post pics of the 220 later tonight.
