A friend of mine has an old Jeep that he water sealed and put a snorkel on. Best part is he`s got a self-extending snorkel capable of up to 15` depth.

We did find out, though, that you absolutely NEED to keep the RPMs up around 1.5k or higher, else the exhaust doesn`t have enough force to keep the water from swamping you from the backside.

I stand corrected. I though the exhaust needed a snorkel. I guess it`s a real drag if you stall the engine eh?

Is Australia always flooded? I swear every video I see from there is cars going through water or a flash flood in a city.

It wasn`t till water seeped into the truck the fool gained traction. The truck was too light and sealed for fording that deep of a crossing.

Tho it wouldn`t have been as entertaining as the vid.

@turbotong - that`s what the snorkel is for, engine is sealed water tight and snorkel take in the air, I drove a humvee with that kit through a pond like that when I was in the Marine Corps, it`s actually pretty fun to do.

How the hell is that possible...
Isn`t the air intake from the front of the car? It was completely submerged and shouldn`t have been able to provide oxygen for combustion...

@ dromEd, the snorlke is for the air intake, very important with a diesel engine.

It`s not the exhaust. The exhaust is coming out the snorkel on the right side towards the front.

The splashing out the back is the exhaust (of course).

@ted: That`s the tires acting as a propeller.

Looks like it has some sort of propellor attached to the flywheel or propshaft.
