This forum will do.

The theory behind the snorkel is to reduce the restriction which air has to overcome on its way into your engine.

As for the second question - real time tuning of your EEC 4 would be ideal but not much support here in the land of oz for such things. Personally i'd go a unichip as this is tuned in real time on a dyno - a powerchip is not.
