    Breathers into snorkel with supercharger

    Iíve got a 2016 JKU. Any idea if plumbing all breathers into a snorkel feeding a supercharger will cause any fluids to be ďsucked upĒ the hoses into the SC intake? Iíve got everything plumbed this way, and Iím finding trace amounts of oil in my supercharger and intake manifold plenum. For the life of me, I canít figure out where itís coming from. Itís not tranny fluid - that much I know. Are there existing issues with oil in JK intake manifolds or do I need to plumb my breather hoses elsewhere?

    Yeah it can be diff fluid. Why on earth would you route them there? Thatís asking for trouble.

    Welcome.. I think I would start by removing the breathers you already have hooked up to snorkel and see if your still getting the residue. I'm no expert but I would imagine that a supercharger through a snorkel would pull a little harder than a non SC.

    I would replumb them all. This idea seems bad. ARB makes a kit where they vent right to the same area with a filter. Really easy install if your breather tubes are already run up front. It's about 70 bucks.

    ^^this^^

    Iíve run that setup for years, one front up high above the brake booster and one in the back behind a tail light up high. No issues with a bunch of deep water crossings

    You stand a chance of pulling contaminants past your seals if you operate your sumps and diffs at a vacuum

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
