you have to break some fins off the thermofans. From memory, only 2 fins so that the bend clears the fans. Then you have to either drill a new set of holes into the snorkel to fit the stock mounts, or you can the lip off a little so that it sits flush with the radiator support, but that means drilling 2 new mounting holes into the radiator support. If you go the latter, please make sure the drill bit you use is short or you have a stopper of some sort, don't want to go and drill into your radiator.
