    I want to install a snorkel to make sure going through water whilst off roading doesnt cost me the engine at some point.

    seems like a lot of Land Rover owners are installing this: https://lucky8llc.com/products/land...ntake-05-09-discovery-3-tf1040-terrafirma-new

    With this one being the “original” snorkel: https://www.roverparts.com/exterior-accessories/kits/SS385HF/

    I am leaning a lot towards the Safari one, the last link as that is the only one in the market that connects directly to the filter housing under the hood - but i mostly see the Terrafirma being used and recommended. (May be because its cheaper, and looks a bit cleaner)

    Do you have any pros or cons for either?

    Has anyone had both?

    Installed the terrfirma style snorkle and had bought it on ebay from some no name vendor i think i only paid $200.
    Downside as you meantioned you have to do a little water ingress mitigation. i used expanding polyurethane spray and just filled the fender area cavity around the built in air duct to limit the water that can get in but i wouldnt ford it through a river with water that actually goes to the snorkle height. Some water will likely go into the intake unless you directly duct it to the intake box.
