Wayne, known as "Nugget" on the HummerXClub forum, has just returned from a 6,200 kilometre trip through the Australian Outback. His trip included 1,500 km of dirt and he was full of praise about the excellent performance he got out of his Sy-Klone Series 9000 from LSM Technologies.

Wayne, known as "Nugget" on the HummerXClub forum, has just returned from a 6,200 kms trip through the Australian Outback. His trip included 1,500 kms of dirt and he was full of praise about the excellent performance he got out of his Sy-Klone Series 9000 from LSM Technologies.

Wayne said: "I contacted Peter Woodford of LSM Technologies and he sized, selected and supplied the correct Series 9000 Precleaner for my Hummer Engine specifications and also the Adaptor for my Safari Snorkel air in- take".

Peter contacted Wayne after the trip and asked him what was the most significant benefits that got out of his Series 9000 Precleaner?

Wayne said: "The Series 9000 Precleaner makes no noise, seems to have increased my engine performance, fuel efficiency and the biggest thing is- have a look at my filter- it is nearly as clean as it went in before the trip!".

Some other points Wayne made on his Series 9000:

  • It sits more flush with the roof line and is centred above the top of the Snorkel, creating a more pleasing line.
  • Offers less restriction as the air is not immediately forced into an elbow, and it does not need to be rotated to optimise performance in prevailing conditions, as does the Air Ram. The Series 9000 also Precleaners the air, which the Snorkel does not provide on its own. See the  demo videos of the Series 9000 in action!
  • Engine Performance was excellent and unrestricted.
  • Fuel Efficiency was surprising- on the way back we attained 15.3 litres / 100 kms and this was with 800 kg of extra gear and all the "beefed- up" specifications as below. 

Wayne's Hummer H3 Adventure technical specifications consists of:

  • Vortec Supercharger.
  • Custom exhaust, 4" Rancho lift with extended shackles and military wrap heavy duty rear suspension.
  • HD Sway-A-Way torsion bars, 35" MTZ's, Rock Sliders.
  • GME UHF radio, Cargo Barrier, UHF aerial custom side mounted.
  • Pioneer AVIC Nav, draw system, dual battery, 500w inverter.
  • Custom roof rack with 4 IPF 800's Custom ARB bullbar.
  • Mile Marker V-Winch 10,000lb.
  • TD low profile shock plates..
  • Safari Snorkel with custom airbox, K & N filter- and of course Series 9000 Precleaner from LSM Technologies.

Other Hummer enthusiasts have also commented that they by far preferred the look of the Series 9000 atop the Safari Snorkel, as opposed to the "Air Ram" that the unit comes with the Snorkel.

LSM Technologies would like to thank Wayne for his contribution to our news story and proving up once again the benefits and features of our Sy- Klone Series 900 Engine Air- intake Precleaners.
