Defender Puma Sealed Air System.
..........the way to a secure sealed air intake system - Don't wade with your fingers crossed.
Click HERE for a fitting guide.
Unfortunately no off-the-shelf Snorkel or Raised Air Intake system can guarantee to offer a fully sealed air intake system from the snorkel right to the air-filter box. The consequences of drawing water into the system can be immediate and catastrophic.
The factory Defender Puma air intake duct offers no sealing at all. It is simply a shaped plastic duct with leaky joints along the way to the air filter box.
If you want to wade with confidence this problem has to be addressed. Until now there has been no off the shelf solution. But now there is a solution to use in conjunction with the main aftermarket Snorkels such as Mantec or Safari.
The Australian Nugget Stuff Sealed Air System overcomes this problem. This comprehensive kit comprises of a fully sealed air chamber to fit inside the wing and attach to the lower end of the snorkel. A tough corrugated 90mm reinforced silicone hose (included) runs from the air chamber and attached to the air filter box via the special adapter also supplied in the kit. Also included with the stainless steel hose clips and polymer sealant are full fitting instructions.
Don't wade with your fingers crossed, fit a Nugget Stuff Sealed Air System and fix the problem for good!
Although this item can be fitted to left and right hand drive vehicles, some modification will be required when fitting to LHD vehicles..
We strongly advise you to check your air filter box for holes or gaps before you go deep wading. Or consider one of the fantastic Nugget sealed air filter boxes for complete peace of mind.
A Snorkel is not included with this item.

What a fantastic bit of kit, I did the airbox mod at the same time, like familymad and I would agree that it pulls much smoother up to 2,000ish. Mine has a remap and the larger air intake seems to be just what it needed to smooth the whole thing out through the rev range. Usual top delivery service from First Four - even in these troubled times. Well pleased.
Does what it says on the tin

Fitted this with a Safari snorkel for a complete sealed system. The air pipe has two thirds more unrestricted airflow than the factory fitted strangle hold pipe work, and the Landy feels like it can breathe at last! It’s relatively easy to fit, just take time and don’t be afraid to cut out the original plastic pipe work. Quality kit very impressed.

Nugget intake kit:
So here are my impressions. It pulls cleaner from idle to 2000rpm. No hesitations. Smoother in stop start traffic with jerky stuttering totally gone. M25 today at 7am confirmed this clear improvement! Slightly quicker throttle response but doesn't feel faster at all. And, it now makes a noise like Darth Vader gurgling on mouth wash on some throttle openings - window closed can't hear much difference. I also removed the restrictive water separator in the airbox while doing the intake fit.
