You'll probably get a bit more induction noise with an additional snorkel, but not much. I doubt it's going to make any noticable effect though. Unfortunately, more openings = more induction noise.

does a 2nd snorkel give you more power due to a bigger opening and more air and does it decrease fuel consumption

yes however, it is the same amount of fuel being combusted just with more oxygen particles hence more power making you travel further of that combustion. so your using the same amounf of fuel. if your hooning most of the time then it will cost drastcally in fuel consumption otherwise it shouldn't matter

If you want more air into the air box place a duct under the air cleaner element and place a fine foam filter at the end to stop dust getting in
